3.5 million diapers will meet the minimum requirement of diapers per 1 thousand babies for 1 year. Our babies need a fresh bottom as the first line of defense against emotional and physical challenges on life's journey. Your contribution will help us reach our goal of distributing 3.5 million diapers in multiple locations wherever our babies cry for a dry bottom. Every baby deserves a dry bottom!
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Without diapers babies cannot participate in early childhood development programs or daycare. This affects an infant's cognitive and social development. Without daycare, Moms cannott secure employment and more than 1.3 million Moms need diapers.
This diaper disparity forces some low-income families to pay up to 14 per cent of their entire income for disposable diapers.
Babies can contract urinary tract infections and severe skin rashes. Dirty diapers can yield life threatening infections, which contribute to infant mortality from germs such as salmonella, listeria, and norovirus.
An adequate supply of diapers may prove a tangible way of reducing parenting stress, a critical factor influencing child health and development. No government program provides assistance for diapers - a basic need.
