Every week, hundreds of babies are born in refugee camps in Idlib, Syria. Mothers have been forced to leave their homes, often with only the items they can carry and clothes on their backs, leaving them without even the most basic necessities to care for a newborn.
With your help, we will hand deliver a Parcel of Love to 1,500 Syrian babies born in refugee camps. Each Parcel of Love will be filled with baby essentials: baby formula, warm clothing and blankets, healthcare items, and a packable bassinet for the baby to sleep in.
In Idlib camps, tens of thousands of internationally displaced babies are being born without adequate shelter, proper clothing and milk to sustain their fragile bodies. Malnourished mothers, unable to produce milk under stressful and cramped living conditions, are left feeding their newborns sugar water, leading to devastating consequences – extreme starvation, malnourishment and impending death.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
We can offer these babies hope of a brighter future, help to alleviate their parents’ suffering, and show them they’re not alone.
