Hurricane Maria has devastated Puerto Rico
Hurricanes Irma & Maria have wreaked cataclysmic damage to Puerto Rico. Children already living in poverty have now found themselves homeless, a bad situation amplified to much worse. Diapers are an overlooked need, and not supplied by most relief agencies. Imagine being homeless, with a young child of diapering age. Together, we can improve the health, well-being, and long-term potential of these devastated families. All babies deserve to be clean, dry, and healthy.
This fund will provide cloth diaper kits, to last from birth to potty training, to high risk children in Puerto Rico through our collaboration with The Rebecca Foundation. All donations to this fund will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts from these storms.

Provision of diapers will increase sanitation and hygiene for children
Children are the most vulnerable population when disaster strikes. For young infants and children, who depend upon a supply of diapers for basic sanitation and hygiene, a disaster can be extremely devastating. Inadequate or no diapers, especially in times of stress, can lead to significant negative health consequences.

By donating as little as $10, you will help children with long term relief and recovery.
As these children and families have their diaper needs solved, they are able to focus on other basic needs as part of recovery and rebuilding. All these steps combined help set these children and their families up for long term success.
