Foundation (Stichting) Baby Hope is collecting maternity items for different projects in countries where the death rate of newborn babies is high.
Items that have not been used and are part of the standard maternity package Dutch women receive for home delivery, such as maternity sanitary pads, diaper tape, disinfectants, etc. can be delivered to Apple Blossom in the Torenallee at Strijp-S.
In countries such as Benin, Ghana and Cameroon, but also in Suriname and Hungary, the conditions in which women give birth are not always satisfactory, according to Stichting Baby Hope. The foundation wants to improve these conditions by donating hygiene items, soap, gloves and baby clothing etc.
For a full list of collection points nationwide, see the charity’s website.
