GIVE BACK

2017: Every blanket gives a kit with birth and newborn essentials to a refugee mother

Refugees are the world's most vulnerable population and today, with 21 million refugees in the world, we are facing a humanitarian crisis without precedent.

Imagine giving birth in a refugee camp, an overpopulated and under resourced tent city. Imagine trying to care for a newborn without basic things like clothing to keep them warm...

Together -- you and us -- are responding to the needs of our refugee sisters by providing free kits with necessities for birth and newborns. One Babies4Babies blanket equals one kit. 

2014-2016: Every blanket gave 4 life saving Chlorhexine swabs for sterile umbilical cord cuttings. 

Because most babies are not born in sterile environments like hospitals and 75% of neonatal deaths around the world are completely preventable through low-tech, high impact medical interventions like Chlorhexidine, a topical antiseptic solution applied to the umbilical cord before it is cut with a sterile razor or scissors. 

We partnered with Saving Mothers and other small NGOs to provide thousands of safe and sterile cord cuttings around the world.
