Donate your leftover nappies to those in need! Your secondhand nappies will go to BraveHearts Program, a charity based in Cambodia which supports orphaned children with special needs. Not only are we proud to support this initiative, but with every 10 secondhand nappies sent to us to donate, we will also contribute one brand-new nappy. We will accept any brand of nappies in good condition.
Donations can be sent to us here at the following address:

A message from BraveHeats
BraveHearts Program endeavors to contribute to the extra care and resources that go beyond just survival for orphaned children with special needs. These children are extremely vulnerable- they have been abandoned, they are spurned by society since disability is still openly stigmatized in Cambodia. It takes enormous resources to care for a child with disability and of course for the majority of our children – independent living is unforeseeable. The children do not have proficiency in the skills of daily living.
We hope to see our children gaining ground in being able to use whatever facility their bodies can be coaxed into expressing. We are encouraging verbal expression, so that the cries and tears are also mixed with laughter, giggles and whoops!
We want to give them the best rehabilitation possible. We want to give them loving care, laughter and fun, counseling, and a nutritionally rich diet. We want to also provide our special needs children access to specialized therapists.
We have been picking up the pieces of these children’s lives; they number more than one hundred, and there are so many pieces. There are a myriad of ways to make a difference. It’s amazing what life is like when you no longer have a mouthful of rotting teeth! It is life saving to have compassionate medical care – with people teaming up to consider ongoing health plans. It’s incredible to have willing and able playmates to explore having fun!!!
BraveHearts has lots of pieces to put together. We hold regular celebrations, organise outings to the beach, zoo or parks, and we head off in a joyous tuk-tuk convoy, wheelchairs, and babes in arms, Cambodian style.
In this institutional setting it becomes perfectly clear the tireless and selfless gifts that parenting bestows on children with special needs. In a developing country like Cambodia, the lack of sophisticated medical infrastructure and services is obvious”
