Baby Kits for New Delivery Center in Zaatari

Home / Humanitarian Aid / Baby Kits for New Delivery Center in Zaatari

Inspired by Finland’s attention to safety and to assist new mommies and babies, we have decided to create boxes to prepare new mothers for their newborn’s first year of life. These kits will include everything from clothing to bathing supplies. We hope to have these boxes filled and distributed by fall to Al-Zaatari Camp’s new Delivery Center. We are aiming to ship these kits in a container by the end of July.
