Help support babies in Mamelodi

After a dispute with management a women is alleged to have mixed poison into baby food at a facility in Pretoria. The babies were rushed to hospital with sickness, runny toilet and were crying. The facility has now closed down and the babies removed and taken to The SOS Children’s Villages Mamelodi which is one of the facilities that we support at Santa Shoebox.
They received 20 babies yesterday from the Department of Welfare. The SOS Children's Villages do not normally have babies and are therefore in desperate need of supplies.

PLEASE ASSIST THEM! They are in need of: • Bottles • Formula • Porridge • Toiletries (Baby soap, Baby oil; Vaseline, bum creams; bath soap; shampoo, lotions) • Wet wipes, Nappies • Medicines (Panado; Calpol; pediatric probiflora ) • Baby Clothes • Any other items that may be useful to care for babies.

Sadly events like this are becoming more common, or maybe they're just being reported more often.
