“Every 90 seconds a Mother dies in childbirth. Globally, 2.9 million babies don’t make it through their first month of life because they don’t have access to basic health care.”
I cannot really comprehend these facts. In our world, where we are surrounded by choice, luxury and the very best health care, how can you possibly comprehend this happening?
“In Nepal, the maternal and child mortality rate is amongst the world’s worst. Every 4 hours a Nepali woman dies due to preventable complications in pregnancy and childbirth. Every 2 hours a Nepali newborn dies.”
We can all help change these heart breaking statistics.
The amazing humans at thankyou sent me some of their new baby range. I am already a fan and regular user of their other ranges .. in our house we love the hand soap and body wash, cranberry and coconut bars, water for the car and now the baby care! The baby lotion and bath wash are already favourites in our bathroom! I use them both myself, who says only the little people can enjoy changing the world?
thankyou is the perfect example of how we can all change the world in our own small ways. Making a choice each time you shop is simple, yet the impact is profound! The team at thankyou believe that we can end global poverty in this lifetime, together. Big goals, lots of little actions required by all of us.
The baby range is the perfect next step for thankyou, since maternal and child health is an area that needs all of our love and help in the developing world. I love that the nappies are slim, gentle and easier on the environment. As with all of their bathroom goodies the baby care is free of nasty chemicals, and full of natural ingredients such as chamomile, coconut oil and aloe vera.
In the true spirit of community, which really is at the heart of everything thankyou do, they have also started a new online community for Mums. Wonderful Mama is a place to connect with other Mums and it also generates more of the much needed funds for their life changing work. It’s a beautiful win-win for Mums all over the world!
