The Mother and Baby Pack Project

has been instrumental in reducing infant pneumonia and other illnesses by improving hygiene and providing warmth. Infection following birth is the major cause of maternal mortality and hypothermia a major cause of infant mortality. Providing basic supplies such as towels, soap, underwear and pads improve hygiene and help reduce the chance of infection.

Why support PNG? (1).jpg

In PNG, many women birth alone with no medical assistance. The packs also have a health brochure we have specifically designed in the pidgin language to express and educate on major health issue in PNG. These packs are an incentive for women to attend hospital for both antenatal clinics, education, and for the birth of their baby.

These packs are then put into one bag and given to mothers when they show at the hospital to birth their babies.

We hold packing days 4 times a year. You can come along to help sort and pack donated items, spend time with like minded people and have a sausage sizzle lunch.
