WHAT IS DIAPER NEED?
1 in 3 families struggle to provide diapers for their children.
Diapers can take up to 6% of a family’s income which is a big deal for everyone, but especially when you live under the poverty line.
HOW EXPENSIVE ARE DIAPERS?
On average, babies go through 8 - 10 diapers each day.
HOW MANY DIAPERS DO BABIES NEED EACH DAY?
Although cloth diapers may seem to be an appealing alternative, daycare’s do not accept them, and families would need convenient and free access to the laundry equipment that is suitable for sanitation.
WHY DO WE COLLECT DISPOSABLE DIAPERS?
WHY ARE FREQUENT DIAPER CHANGES NECESSARY?
Babies can suffer from urinary tract infections, and diaper rash if they are left in a soiled diaper for too long.
Stress caused by being unable to pay for the needed supply of diapers can sometimes lead domestic disputes, and parental anxiety and depression.
