The Baby Supplies Project is part of the Benevolence Program and was created with the aim of supporting the parents with a monthly distribution of baby care goods and spreading awareness about good hygiene and baby care practices to contribute to their healthy development. We are currently supporting 50 babies between 0 and 2 years old and we carry out the baby supplies distribution on the last week of every month.
