This venture is a volunteer project where ACU midwifery students, their family and friends come together to create sustainable products for the birthing women of Santo [Vanuatu] and the Northern Provincial Hospital [NPH]. The idea developed from students and staff working with the pregnant, birthing women, and new mothers at NPH.
Our aim is to make the women and their families’ lives easier while also reducing their cost of living.Learn more
Our goal is to create 50 packs for 50 women. Each pack will consist of 2 bases and 8 tri-fold pads. Therefore we are aiming to sew 100 bases and 400 tri-fold pads by June 2015.
Can you sew? Do you have some cotton fabric that you could donate – old cotton or flannelette sheets would be perfect. Would you like to be involved in another way?
Donations of 100% cotton materials and/or sewn pads and bases are welcomed and can be handed into the Australian Catholic University office.
