    Ensuring every kid can stay clean and fresh

    Day 1

    Nappies in a Bunch

    Today, we’re back at the orphanage in Hargeisa, a place near and dear to the Alight staff. With over 400 children living at the orphanage, there are tons of needs to meet. But as any parent will tell you, you can never have too many diapers!

    But at the orphanage, it’s hard for the staff to keep a healthy stock of each diaper size, which means they’re often forced to make do with diapers that just don’t fit right.

    We wanted to make sure that going into the new year, our staff had all the materials they needed to give these kids the care they deserve! So, we filled up the back of our truck with diapers and brought them to the orphanage. We made sure to get a variety of sizes, ensuring that all the kids can be taken care of.

    Our staff loved knowing they could start the year out with this important need met. Plus, the orphanage staff were thrilled to see others get pumped up about diapers! Here’s to a clean and healthy year.
