In 2002, we heard about babies leaving a local hospital without necessities like nappies, clothing or basic toiletries – even to the point of a baby going home in a plastic shopping bag! So a group of ladies in our congregation rose to the challenge and began sewing beautiful nappy bags and quilts, filling them with the essentials. By April 2020 they had distributed over 18 800 bags in all shapes, sizes and colours. Deliveries go to the following local hospitals: Karl Bremer, Kraaifontein, Tygerberg, Wesfleur, Paarl, Mowbray, Delft, Eerste River, Bishop Lavis and Durbanville clinic. They also go further afield to communities in need in places like Botswana, Kenya, Malawi and Swaziland. One baby and one mother at a time – providing some form of rescue from an unfair and unjust start to life.
