“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep one self from being polluted by the world.”
We were recently contacted by an adoptive Mama about a Diaper Drop, to an orphanage in an extremely poverty stricken country. Each and every Diaper Drop is prayerfully considered, and unique in it’s own way. This particular Diaper Drop is to an orphanage that is home to about 65 children, of which 5-10 are currently under 1. There are about 7 caregivers at the orphanage. The orphanage is very desolate, and has many overwhelming needs, one of which is appropriate diapers for the little ones. Due to the location and poverty level of the area, simple brown diapers would be most appropriate so as to not draw unwanted attention to the orphanage.
There is a group of families that have joined together to help provide for the most basic needs for this orphanage, including a water cistern so they can get clean water. Currently the nearest clean water source is a mile away. In addition to clean water, this group of families is working to establish a food support program. Currently the orphanage is so destitute, that the children share bowls for food or eat off the ground. There is 1 bed shared with 15 children, the rest sleep on the ground.
The adoption process is a delicate one, and sadly not every child will find a forever family. In addition to proving for the basic needs at this orphanage, the families that are working to provide for this orphanage are also seeking sustainability options to work with the orphanage and children there to help them provide for themselves and enable these innocent children a chance at a better life.
We feel compelled to help these babies, as part of our call here at Jake’s Diapers. Please keep these babies and the work at Jake’s Diapers in your prayers. Please also pray for the adoption process, and for those that may not find forever families.
If you would like to help these babies and our work here at Jake’s Diapers, please share our story. We run on prayers, shares, cash and cloth; and you never know who may be able to help us in this journey. We also have a variety of business buddies, including The Little Bee Co, with whom we have set up a wishlist for this Diaper Drop (http://thelittlebeeco.com/my-lists/edit-my-list/?wlid=1426). For every diaper donated, The Little Bee Co. matches that donation, and two diapers go to babies in need!
