Babies in Syria don't deserve this

Remember the joy when you or a family member welcomed a newborn baby?  We had a room stocked with diapers, clothes and any other needed supplies we could run out and easily pick up.

This has been another devastating week for Syrians.  We have a chance to make a difference in the lives of Syrian moms and their babies by providing Baby Boxes though the #ParcelOfLove campaign.

Did you know of the 4.8 million registered Syrian refugees, half are children and over 60,000 babies have been born in exile? These refugees face extreme poverty, limited shelter, limited medical access, virtually no access to education, and children are showing symptoms of psychological strain from the traumas of witnessing war.

Remember your obstetrician and family providing you comfort during your pregnancy and delivery? These moms living in the camps are worried about the hardships of childbirth in such a setting, what they’ll feed their newborn and the feeling of abandonment

The Parcel of Love campaign aims to bring relief to 1,500 Syrian babies born into refugee camps, providing infants with baby formula, warm clothing and blankets, healthcare items, and a packable bassinet for the baby to sleep in.

The Heroic Hearts Organization is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, non-political organization, dedicated to bringing lasting and positive change to lives of the internally displaced or those suffering in war-ravaged communities. 100% of your donation will go directly to the cause without administrative overhead.
