We are going to put together a bag with all the basic needs for a newborn baby on the run. In part, the Carry bag will be filled with the products collected in the Netherlands and we’ll complete it with locally purchased products from your donations.
Because We Carry is active on the Greek island of Lesbos where,amongst others, we support fathers, mothers and their children. We try to give all the small children a baby carrier or a buggy, however the last few weeks it has become more and more apparent that there is nothing for newborns and their mothers.
The local hospital doesn’t have any more small clothes, the children even stay naked after they’re born and the smallest size is also no longer available in the various camps.
This makes us very sad. We’re going to change this together with you. And so we turn sadness into decisiveness.
How are we going to do this?
We’re looking for 12 people who will become collectors.
As you can see on the map, we’ve given each province a number. Are you going to become a collector? Put your province’s number and email address in the comments.
p.s. Each province only needs 1 collector.
Info for the collectors will follow via email.
p.p.s. This is a very loving job #collectkarmapoints but it requires your effort and dedication
