Child Welfare International Disasters Family Support

Babies are a particularly vulnerable group in times of natural disaster. Hurricane Harvey has tipped thousands of Texan infants into increased risk of sudden infant death by disrupting the living and sleeping conditions for families. It is harder for parents to provide safe sleeping conditions when fearful and displaced. An emergency baby bed may support parents and protect their babies

Funds raised will be used to supply Pepi-Pod sleep spaces to Texan infants displaced by the floods. Pepi-Pods are supplied in New Zealand to infants more vulnerable to sleep related deaths. Texan infants will receive a pod, mattress and two slip-on bottom sheets in the package, and a letter of goodwill to Texan parents from the people of New Zealand. Funds will also be used to freight the pods to Texas unless we receive offers to help with this.

Change for our Children leads the Pepi-Pod Programme in New Zealand, so we have the materials and networks to make this response. We will coordinate all aspects of manufacture and supply of goods to the point of shipping. From there, Texan authorities will coordinate collection, and distribution to shelters.

All funds raised benefit:

Babies and their families of Texas displaced by the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey.

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Change for our Children on behalf of Babies and their families of Texas displaced by the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey..
