    Mother In Need!

    i've just returned from a stay at QMH where i met a lovely woman that could really use our help. She's a new single mother of twins (one boy, one girl). She just delivered by c-section last wednesday and she's getting ready to head home on Sunday.

    She is receiving no support from her family who have basically decided that she no longer exsists. The father of the children doesn't want to have anything to do with them and is offering NO support, financial or otherwise.

    If you have a bassinette or a double pram that you are willing to part with, it would be greatly appreciated. My friend just doesn't have the resources or the space for much right now, so bassinettes/moses baskets would be perfect.

    Also, if you are willing to donate nappies or wet wipes or anything like that, I'll start a collection for her. Due to her lack of space, I'll be storing things at my house(DB) and taking them to her(Sheung Wan) as needed.

    She has approached her church but all they offered was a lecture. The gov't is only providing $1300/month. So anything and everything would be greatly appreciated.
    Please respond here or send me an email if you are interested in helping.

    Thank you so much!

    Thanks Everyone! I really appreciate all of the offers we've received so far. I'm hoping that she'll come to stay with us, at least until the incision has a chance to heal properly and she can walk unaided.

    This woman is completely alone. No family support whatsoever. And a jerk of a "boyfriend" that has decided he has better things to do than provide for his children. She is planning on filing at court for some kind of maintenance, but it could take up to a year to get legal aid sorted out and get the court papers filed.

    I am thinking of starting up a charity for women like my friend and women that REALLY need help.
    However, I have no idea how to go about it...anyone know where i should start?
    Thanks!

    I'm appalled at the church's response :-(

    Not all Christians are like that!

    Would love to help, I will be in touch with Fee about it.
