Mama Kits for refugee mamas
Giving birth is one of the scariest things one could do. Not only because of the things that might happen* but also because all of a sudden there is that tiny human being ultimately relying on you. Whether by love or obligation, it is the parents’ responsibility to take care of their child.
Image birthing in the midst of an armed conflict (there are so many to choose from…), on the run from those who would not hesitate to harm civilians. Or rather – do not imagine it as it would make your day crappy. Instead, make a donation. I suppose there are many worthy organizations out there. I just sent a mama kit through the UNFPA.
I don’t have a book to tie in to this topic. I write nice little romances, after all. But we cannot close our eyes to those in need. Not if we want to remain the person we think we are.
