Hatch, founded by Christy Smith and Jacqui Barhouch, has made its first donation of newborn ‘starter packs’ to mothers in Gugulethu.

Each pack, put together using donated items, contains a baby blanket, babygrow, vests, leggings, a warm top, hat, socks, nappies, cotton wool, wipes, soap, aqueous cream, a toy, and sanitary pads for Mom.

Companies and schools have pledged to run drives to collect items for the next batch of Hatch bags, meaning the next donation is around the corner.

To get involved in donating or running a collection drive, please visit www.hatch.org.za or contact Jacqui on jacqui@hatch.org.za
