WHEN new mother Danielle How gave birth to girl, Zara, a few months ago, it dawned on her just how difficult having a newborn is.

Lucky for How she had the support of her family and friends, however, she knew there are mothers who do not have the same support system, and she wanted to make a difference.

She soon found out about the Robin Hood Foundation’s Love the Babies campaign which blesses more 500 newborns over the next three months - essentially a baby shower in a bag filled with items new moms need.

“The Robin Hood Foundation’s Love the Babies campaign is top of mind as a mom. The amount of nappies and clothes that my little bundle didn’t fit into from birth was enough for two babies,” says How.

“I have been to the hospitals and seen new mothers who have absolutely nothing for their newborns, and it is heartbreaking. I have been richly blessed with everything I need for Zara and I will continue to pass on to RHF to bless these little ones.”

She urged mothers to support the campaign.
“I strongly support the campaign and urge all the moms in our community to do the same as there is such a huge need.”

For more information, contact the Robin Hood Foundation on 076 612 9060 or email - Supplied.
