With every diaper purchased The Little Bee Co. will donate a diaper to a baby in need. Once enough diapers are collected for each baby of one entire orphanage/facility, a “Diaper Drop” is organized to deliver the diapers and help in assisting caregivers with the transition to modern cloth.

“In December 2010, I traveled with Visiting Orphans to Uganda for the first time and fell in love with the land and the people. The children have more joy and faith than any child I have ever seen. It humbled me to the core and began the growth of my love for the orphan. Many Ugandan’s live day-to-day simply on prayer, nothing else. Time and time again I encountered brand new babies not wearing any diapers. Sometimes they were just nude, other times they had a piece of soiled, dirty cloth tied on. I asked some of the mothers and they said that they usually only are able to change their diaper once a day due to the lack of supplies. Can you imagine how nasty that diaper would be? Oftentimes, I could hardly hold a child because the stench was so horrible, but held him or her because love is what the child needed more than anything. Other times, I would ask the mother if I could bathe the child quickly and found one of my t-shirts to use as a makeshift diaper. Since December, I have been blessed to travel to Uganda two more times and encountered the same issues in the villages. The lack of sanitation is awful in Uganda and I truly feel the children are suffering because of it.” ~Brooke, Senior at Illinois State University
“Thank YOU so so SOOOO much for the diapers!!! I cannot even tell you how thankful I am that the babies have those. Our diapers were in pretty poor repair….and it is very nice to pick up those sweet babies without worrying about getting soaked!” ~Jacqueline Kramlich, SHC
