All money raised from the sale of Desert Rose will go to help feed babies at The Mphatso Children's Foundation. I had the amazing and humbling experience of visiting Robyn and her team of volunteers in Malawi in 2019, where I shared baby massage and participated in an early learning community development project. These babies mothers have died, often because of HIV and are now being cared for by their families (Aunts, and Grandmothers) in the community. The foundation provides regular health check ups and formula for these babies. Without the support they would be struggling to survive. Every book sold will make a difference. You will be making a difference in a child, family and community's life. What a beautiful gift of love.
My visit to Malawi to share baby massage love with the women and children, was made possible by the work of Love Support Unite. You can donate directly to the Baby Feeding Program through their website.
