Jamaican Mommies by Shanoy Coombs: From Jamaica; for the world
As many of you already know, Haiti has been struck a devastating blow and while aid is
pouring in, many seem to forego the needs of the many mommies and kids who are currently experiencing turmoil in Haiti. On seeing a newscast with 25 babies in a truck, as a mother I was moved to tears. With the lack of formula, the babies are being fed milk powder which gives their little tummies diahrrea and in turn dehydration. I know we all want to offer as much help as we possibly can. So I make a special appeal on behalf of moms, parents and children. In our giving, let us remember to send baby and children’s clothes, soaps, diapers, wipes, formula, cereals, sanitary napkins, toothbrush, toothpaste and any other thing that you as a parent deem essential. I do not know how long the recovery process will be, but let us all in our own way, play a part. And even if you cannot send items, remember to pray for those in Haiti. Pray for the many orphans, persons in pain, the doctors, nurses, volunteers etc who are also working with limited resources. I do intend to further my part by starting a ‘Save the Haiti Babies’ awareness drive to encourage everyone to remember to drop off formulas, diapers and other baby essentials. Just please give whatever you can to the varied age
ncies in Jamaica currently collecting items. I plan to collect as much items as possible. Let us all work together, as the little things we do will make a BIG difference and as we know “One One coco, full basket” Keep your eyes here for an update on the “Save the Haitian Babies” awareness Initiative.
