What Is In Our Baby Packs?
Our packs have been carefully designed to make a huge difference to the health, safety, and well-being of babies in real need.
Each of our packs includes everything a baby needs at birth, plus additional health & safety items. We also provide a safe sleeping space wherever needed, as well as strollers, baby baths, baby safety gates, high chairs and more!
