Christian refugee mothers desperately need diapers for their babies – Please help
The Diapers for Refugees program is currently delivering 160,000 high quality disposable diapers to Christian families in northern Iraq every three months. The cost of a single shipment of diapers is $18,000. This cost has remained stable since the start of the program in 2016. The cost per diaper is only 11 cents each.
Please help us as we strive to reach out goal of 640,000 diapers delivered to Christian families in need in 2017.
