The Cuddle Bundles team receives regular requests each week from our partner organisations around Sydney. Social workers at maternity wards in local hospitals, at women's shelters for domestic violence victims and homeless, community centres, refugee organisations and multicultural and indigenous health centres contact us when mums are in need of a Cuddle Bundle or Pamper Packs.
Besides our regular local bundles, we always try to answer calls for assistance around greater NSW and Australia, having sent baby clothing, blankets and accessories to areas needing assistance to Lismore's flood victims, Taree's bushfire victims and a number of times partnered with Thread Together to send childrens wear to remote communities in the Northern Territory.
Outside of Australia we know how dire the need is in many developing countries, so wherever possible using 'Travel Angels' or donated freight, we have reached countries such as Mozambique at the time of their floods, India with doctors administering vaccinations to children, to the Congo, Nepal and Armenia. Recently we partnered with aid organisations to send essentials to Turkiye after their tragic earthquakes. Our connection to South Africa is also strong and we have used 'Travel Angels' to donate to partner charities Baby Bundles and UJW, who prepare similar bundles for mums that have just given birth in the poorest parts of the country.
Our belief is that every child deserves an equal start to life, and a chance to thrive. It takes a village to raise a child, and Cuddle Bundles is privileged to be a part of that village, making a difference for mums and babies.
