‘Mummy’s In Need’ started with one box of baby clothes and an urgent need…
The need came from my older sister, who overnight became unexpectedly pregnant and devastated by this reality at age 16.
This is an all too common occurrence, especially in NZ where teen pregnancy statistics are of the highest recorded in the OECD. NZ birth rate figures show that 22% of 1000 babies born each year are to young, unprepared, teenage parents.
This places us at #4 worldwide behind Slovak Republic, USA and Turkey.
Mummies In Need started from a simple need to help my sister which has now grown into an organisation that has provided basic clothing, food and hygiene to thousands of young and struggling families.
The philosophy of Mummies in Need is simple, provide a platform that unites the common good of the community, to support a community of new mummies and families who need the basics to raise healthy happy children.
Our journey started with one box of baby clothes and and an urgent need.
Now Mummies in Need continues to grow and support thousands of young mums, in fact all mums of all ages, in need.
“You have personally helped my daughter and the support is amazing. Considering she has been through a lot and with the help from you guys without judgment means a lot and makes her want to show everyone she has what it takes to get through this hard time 🙂 Thank you!”
