My family and I will be traveling to Belgrade on Sept. 17th and we are asking for donations of baby carriers (Ergo, Baby Bjorns, etc. – just not the wraps) for refugee families passing through Serbia. These carriers are much less common and more expensive in Eastern Europe, but they can make a huge difference for parents that have been carrying their babies in their arms for days or weeks.
If you have a used or new carrier to donate, please drop it by Floating World Comics before Sept. 13th, or at OKO or the IPRC (with Pollyanne Birge). Your kindness will be appreciated by these brave parents struggling to find a safe home for their children! We will be donating the carriers to Refugee Aid Serbia who have been distributing clothes and food to families as seen in this video.
If you would like to help but don’t have any baby carriers to donate, here are some organizations that are doing important work.
