ORGANISATIONS that care for children and the elderly are often faced with the difficult decision of choosing between paying for necessities like phone bills or buying disposable nappies. The ever increasing price of nappies makes it difficult for organisations to survive without help from the public.A much needed lifeline was given to Operation Bobbi Bear when Predo Baby SA donated four bales of disposable nappies. “Disposable nappies are a basic necessity for organisations such as Bobbi Bear, as well as any family with babies, and yet it remains one of the most highly priced items in South Africa. We provide high quality nappies at a fraction of the cost, which makes it affordable to all,” Yaseen Amod from Predo Baby SA said.Aneesa Vawda, projects co-ordinator of Gifted Hope Foundation, said they often find mothers in rural areas using plastic bags or pieces of cloth as nappies. “These babies are exposed to potential health risks such as yeast and bacterial infections and nappy rash. We are working closely with Predo Baby SA, who have been so generous in giving back to the community by sponsoring nappies,” Vawda said.Eureka Olivier from Bobbi Bear said the organisation was truly grateful to Predo Baby SA as the diapers could not have come at a better time. - Supplied.
