Diaper Drop: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Image

Jake’s Diapers is excited to introduce our plans to supply two orphanages in Ethiopia with the gift of modern, sanitary cloth diapers.

Image

Due to extremely limited supplies, diaper changes are limited to twice per day. This has sad ramifications for the children, as severe diaper rash and sores can develop. The gift of an abundant supply of cloth diapers will change this! The first orphanage is home to 50 little ones; of which 40 + are in need of diapers. The second orphanage, located 6 hours apart from the first, is in the process of being built. This orphanage will house 25-30 orphans in need of cloth diapers.  The caregivers at these orphanages desire to be able to take care of medical needs properly and provide emotional and daily care and hope for a bright future.

Image

It is the hope and prayer of the individuals building and running these orphanages to introduce a higher standard of care; and long term they strive to not only train their nannies to a high standard of care, but nannies at other orphanages as well. They hope to make a lasting difference in improving the quality of orphan care! Lord willing, we will keep working with them on their journey by providing cloth diapers, and other urgent needs as able.

  1. I can’t thank Jake’s Diaper Drop, their supporters and suppliers enough for all the wonderful diapers/soakers and covers!!! I have all the beautiful diapers and covers received from Jake’s Diaper Drop washed/prepped and soakers stuffed back into each….they are ready to go! Now to come up with a way to fund all the excess baggage. (was wonderful to not have to remove stains and make repairs….Thank you). I can’t wait to take these to Ethiopia and start putting them on the babies, I will plan my trip as soon as finances will allow.
