GIFT 4 A GIFT
Mama’s supporting Mama’s is at the very core of our ethos.
We believe that every mother should have the opportunity to take care of their baby in the best way possible and that means as well as support, having a LOT of ‘stuff’ to keep their little one fed, clean and cared for.
We have chosen to work with Ourmala who run the Happy Baby Project. Mama’s in this project have survived some of humanity’s worst atrocities, which can in some cases include years of repeated physical, sexual and psychological violence and have endured long, dangerous journeys to seek safety in the UK. All they want is to give their children a better life, free from violence and abuse.
Often forced to live in desperately poor conditions, isolated in a an unfamiliar country and exposed to overwhelming negativity, these young families struggle with unbearable loneliness and despair. Living on just £35 a week and whilst seeking asylum (which can take a considerable length of time) legally unable to work, these mothers have to be incredibly resourceful to make sure they & their babies basic needs are met.
Ourmala offer incredible support to a number of these amazing women through providing specialist trauma-informed yoga, hot meals, midwifery, doula and parenting skill support, counselling and basic baby equipment.
With each deluxe gift box purchased from MamaBox, we will send a deserving mum a care kit consisting of high quality products to help towards the wellbeing of themselves and their baby.
Each care kit costs £13 and contains;
A 25ml tube of original Dr Paw Paw balm, which Mama can use as a lip balm, a nipple cream or to soothe and heal nappy rash and minor cuts and bruises.
A 100ml tube of Childs Farm nappy cream suitable for newborns and upwards, dermatologist approved for sensitive skin and also suitable as a general moisturiser for Mama.
A 50ml bottle of Childs Farm Hair & Body wash, in fragrant organic sweet orange containing moisturising Argan oil to cut through grime and dirt. Suitable from newborns and upwards and for sensitive skin.
For every petite box sold, a tube of Dr Paw Paw balm for mother & baby is sent to Ourmala, worth £6.95. Thank you for your support!
