The birth kits are kits distributed to mothers after giving birth at the Nhampuepua Health Center (Sofala - Mozambique), built by APOIAR in 2021. Most mothers accompanied live in situations of extreme poverty and arrive at the health center with nothing. The birth kit allows these mothers to feel more secure, at such an important stage, and to be able to take better care of their babies.

Among the products that make up these kits are: packaging of sanitary napkins, underwear for mothers, blanket, changes of baby clothes, soap bar, cloth diapers, diaper pins, baby soap, baby cream...

    Graças à sua ajuda já conseguimos Kits Parto para 57 mamãs!!!

    Obrigado pela sua importante contribuição para esta campanha!
    Já conseguimos angariar 57 Kits parto para o ano 2024, no Centro de Saúde de Nhampuepua!
    As mães que vivem em realidades de pobreza extrema, e que vão ter os seus bebés entre Janeiro a Março de 2024, têm já os seus Kit Parto garantidos (kits tão básicos, simples e fundamentais que muitas vezes nem imaginamos que é possível que não estejam ao alcance de todos).
    Com este agradecimento segue também um pedido: continuamos a contar com a sua ajuda para dar a conhecer esta realidade/necessidade a outros. Na página do projeto, por baixo do vídeo, existem vários botões que poderão usar para partilhar esta campanha nas redes sociais (p.ex. Facebook e WhatsApp). Ajude-nos a dar a oportunidade a outras pessoas de conhecerem e apoiarem esta causa.
    Bem haja.
