***Give me your old cloth nappies!*** Pretty please :)

Well, not me personally but Sudanese and Syrian refugees desperately need cloth nappies💚

Cloth nappies can be literally life-saving for refugee babies in camps because without them, babies are subjected to staying in wet, dirty nappies all day leaving them open to the risk of infection, diseases and pneumonia. But a cloth nappy that can be washed dramatically reduces that risk.

Please, please send us your cloth nappies new or pre-loved but good condition. All nappies will be put on our 40ft container leaving Portsmouth at the end of the month (July) to Uganda.

If you don't have any cloth nappies going spare but would like to help, each nappy pack is £24 and will provide reusable nappies that can be used from birth until they are old enough not to need nappies. Send funds to our PayPal ref cloth nappy. More info at:

Drop nappies off in Portsmouth or Birmingham:

3 Studley Street
B12 8JB
Mon-Fri 10-6

Portsmouth - drop off or post:
North End Baptist Church
195 Powerscourt Rd
Portsmouth PO2 7JH

I have a few from a trial pack that I didn't get on with. I'll try to post them in the next few days. I'm glad they'll be going to someone who needs them.

Glad to see you posting this. I saw the FB post and have some I will send. They are also looking for people to be collection points.

Gladysmum Mon 18-Jul-16 19:28:41

I've bought these and asked the seller to send them to your Portsmouth church. Poor little darlings.

AnotherUsernameBitesTheDust Mon 18-Jul-16 19:28:45

I have some lurking about and need to have a sort out/declutter so I'll get them in the post.

Is there a web page or anything and I will share this on Facebook!

lljkk Mon 18-Jul-16 19:34:07

Do you need wraps, too? I have several that no one has wanted but I can't bear to bin. Medium size.

doceodocere Mon 18-Jul-16 19:36:27

Are two-parters any good or are you just after the all-in-one types?

LyndaNotLinda Mon 18-Jul-16 21:44:42

RitchyBestingFace Mon 18-Jul-16 21:49:20

AWaspOnAWindowInAHeatwave Mon 18-Jul-16 23:03:47

Are disposables any use? I know they can't be washed but I do have some that are too small for my DC.

Maki79 Mon 18-Jul-16 23:05:00
