Nappies, formula milk and wetwipes is our greatest need

Our Needs

Our Needs at Thembiso are extensive.  We are always looking for people with skills in medicine, fundraising, marketing, people relations, and maintenance, but our biggest needs are monthly material expenses such as nappies, baby formula, baby lotion and shampoo. In addition there are financial needs to be met. It costs approximately R130 per day to care for a baby taking all these needs into account. We do receive just over R300 per baby from the government. This is obviously not enough to care for the babies
