Lutheran World Relief Baby Care Kits
Bringing a baby into the world can be a difficult and scary thing for a mother living in poverty. A “Baby Care Kit” from LWR provides the things a mother needs to care for her baby the way she hopes to — soft blankets to give warmth and comfort, soap to keep germs away. Lack of something to dress her baby in often keeps a mother isolated from her community, but the clothes in a Baby Care Kit welcome both mother and baby out into the world. Baby Care Kits will be our emphasis for the months of May and June.
Here are the items included in each kit:
• 2 lightweight cotton t-shirts
• 2 long- or short-sleeved gowns or sleepers (without feet)
• 2 receiving blankets, medium-weight cotton or flannel (up to 52” square)
• 4 cloth diapers (flat fold preferred)
• 1 jacket, sweater or sweatshirt with a hood, or include a baby cap
• 2 pairs of socks
• 1 hand towel (dark color recommended)
• 2 or 3 bath-size bars (8 to 9 oz.) of “gentle” soap (in original wrapping)
• 2 large safety pins
Clothing between 6 and 24 months (No new born clothing, please) and may be “gently" used and in good condition.” Donations may be left in the basket outside the church office.
