Providing Milk for Orphaned Babies
When a baby loses their most precious person their Mum, for many babies in poorer communities in Tanzania the baby is left unable to get the milk they need.
Imagine going into a shop and 1 tin of formula costs your entire week's salary. Imagine then knowing the baby needs two tins a week to get the nutrition they need.
1 week is £14
1 month £ 56
To feed 1 baby until they are weaned is £460
Pamoja Leo helps babies to find or stay with a family; Grandma, Aunties, Neighbours or Foster Mums. Often Aunties or Grandmas come to us desperate holding a 1-month old baby who is quickly losing weight.
When incredible Women step in to take on the role of Mum we believe we should do all it takes to ensure they have the resources they need to be the best Mama possible. We do not want babies to be abandoned and made to be orphans again all because they could not afford the milk. We also know how babies suffer, if their family raises them without access to proper nutrition- no baby should know that hunger.
This global pandemic has means that getting the quantity of milk we need to feed all the babies is becoming an issue. The milk is imported and due to shutdowns we need to secure a large supply
Your donations will allow us to buy enough milk to help us through the next 3 months So we can keep on saving lives and changing the system.
