Bless a Baby

Personal message

Imagine a baby being born and the mom having nothing for her baby. No blanket or clothing, nothing to keep the baby warm or clean. Bless-a-Baby makes up Bags of Love or Bags of Hope for moms and their vulnerable newborn babies.  These include essential items for both mom and baby. Taking the worry of provision away from the mom for a short time.

Our bags go to people that are living in dire circumstances.  For some babies, the 3 outfits of clothing in a Bag of Love is all the clothing the baby will wear until they grow out of the 0-3 month size.  We are taking care of the babies, “one baby at a time”.

El Shaddai Christian Church

El Shaddai Christian Church  Logo

Bless-a-Baby- (a ministry of El Shaddai Christian Church) has been assisting mothers  and their newborn babies in our community for almost 17 years, by distributing filled nappy bags to 8 local hospitals in the Western Cape and 3 hospitals in Bloemfontein. 

In 2002, we heard about babies leaving a local hospital without necessities like nappies, clothing or basic toiletries – even to the point of a baby going home in a plastic shopping bag! So a group of ladies in our congregation (El Shaddai Christian Church) rose to the challenge and we began sewing beautiful nappy bags and filling them with the essentials.
By the end of December 2018, we have distributed over 13920 bags in all shapes, sizes and colours, both locally (Karl Bremer, Kraaifontein, Tygerberg, Wesfleur in Atlantis, Paarl and Mowbray Maternity hospitals, Durbanville clinic and Delft MOU) as well as further afield to communities in need in places like Botswana, Kenya, Malawi and even Russia. One baby and one mother at a time – providing some form of rescue from an unfair and unjust start to life.
