The Gift of a Grandma

Some time ago a group of Ladies from England decided to make a difference in the lives of Bulgarian orphans.  They decided to sell handbags to provide and support Baba's (Grandma's) for severely neglected orphans.  Here is more information about this exciting program!


Imagine what it must mean for these children who have spent the majority (if not all) there lives confined to bed!  Nothing to do.  Laying in there own waste for hour after hour with only one clean diaper per day.  Not enough food to eat.  Some weigh only 10-25 even at the age of 9, 10, or even older.  Mere skeletons with breath in them.  Emaciated silent children who have learned long ago that no one will respond if they cry - so they remain silent.


Imagine what it must mean for them to receive a Baba.  For two hours a day, five days per week they are given individual attention, a clean diaper, love and attention, time outside their crib.  Imagine what a difference a Baba can make to these children!

Here is one woman's impression after visiting the orphanage, meeting children, and seeing the Baba's at work.

The article titled "We can make a difference" was written in 2009.  I encourage you to read it if you have time!

Here are some ways you can help provide Baba's for these desperately needy children!

Buy a handbag:

The purchase of one handbag provides a needy child with SIXTY HOURS of Grandma time!

That is 6 weeks of love (10 hours per week)!

Dear little Katie received the benefit of a Baba before she came home.

Here is a post by her Mama that led me to the site about the Baba Program and the handbags.
(The post is in a question & answer format with a couple of questions about Baba's)
