From blog and facebook friends who have recently been in Ethiopia, diapers appear to be a huge need. I can't imagine not having something to cover my little one's bottom. They sometimes have to wash out and re-use disposable diapers. (Can you imagine?)
We are hoping to bring 6 Rubbermaid bins. The list of items below, including diapers, are things that are either hard to find in Ethiopia (like specialized formulas) or that cost much more there than here.
(Friends and Family, with absolutely no pressure, if you want to donate, but live far from us and don't want to ship items to us, you can send us gift cards to purchase the items you would like to donate.)Donations for EthiopiaDiapers of all sizes (including preemie-sized)--cloth or disposable
