Washington DC Relief Society Project Benefits' Zimbabwe

WASHINGTON DC -- More than 500 Newborn Kits and approximately 200 dresses produced by the Washington DC Stake Relief Society's humanitarian effort will go to The Republic of Zimbabwe. The Humanitarian Aid Project began in January and culminates with a huge Service 2001 work day on Saturday, March 24.

The announcement was made by Ann Santini, director of Church Office International Affairs in Washington, D.C., after a meeting with Ambassador Simbi Veke Mubako from The Republic of Zimbabwe.

Ambassador Mubako and his wife Dr. Hazel Mubako will speak briefly at 9 a.m. at the opening of the all day service project on Saturday, March 24, at the Washington DC Stake Center, 10000 Stoneybrook Drive, Kensington, Md. They want to meet the women who have devoted their time and energy to helping the babies and children in their country.

One thousand Newborn Kits have been requested for the many orphan babies who are left parentless when their parents die of AIDS.

Each Newborn Kit includes: 1 double receiving blanket , 4 cloth diapers, 4 diaper safety pins, 2 regular-sized bars of soap, 1 newborn layette gown, and 1 pair booties or baby socks.
