The not so sad sacks

Charitable project to knit for

What is the Baby Pack Project.

The Baby Pack Project  is a small charitable project aimed at providing under-privileged mothers of newborn babies on the lower south coast of Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa, with a pack of the most basic items needed for a new born baby.  The Baby Pack Project  came about in 2005 when local lady Gill Richardson, saw newborn babies leave Ntabeni clinic in Kwa Zulu Natal wrapped in newspaper because the mothers had nothing else to wrap them in. The Baby Pack Project has grown out of that small seed of compassion sown by Gill back in 2005.

Each pack contains:     a nappy (diaper) and pin, a waterproof (rubber baby pants),a jumper (sweater or cardigan)

    a baby grown, a bib, a vest, booties or socks, a blanket, soap, a little knitted toy

Even one contribution would help!
