Maternity packs – making a difference

On the 11th October 2014 we were privileged enough to host our second 500 maternity packs packing day! We were able to make these packs in 3 hours this time (improved our time compared to our June 2014 run) and we improved the way the packs looked. Thank you to who helped fund these 500 packs!

The packs included the following:

  • 20 nappies
  • bum cream
  • baby lotion
  • wet wipes
  • maternity pad pack
  • blanket
  • a newborn outfit
  • a magazine
  • a breastfeeding pamphlet
  • an impact Africa pamphlet

Next time (29 November 2014) we are packing 100 packs for Christmas and hope to include a 3-6 months outfit, as well as a 6-12 month outfit.

If you have any ideas as to how we can improve our packs, please email us at

We cost 100 packs at R10 000 and would like to encourage people who want to bless Christmas babies to donate money to this cause, banking details below:
