Cloth Pads for An African Orphanage

Cloth Pads for An African Orphanage

Posted on 31. May, 2010 by Trish in Crafts

I recently came across a post on a forum by someone who was asking for advice for how to make cloth pads for an orphanage in Africa.  Her friend was adopting 2 girls from there and none of the girls had any sanitary supplies.  There were 30 girls, so the gal was going to try to make 200 cloth pads for them, also known as Mama Cloth.

Well, next thing we know, everyone is volunteering to help out and we had over 200 pads promised, and more coming in, so we decided to try for 400 pads to help another orphanage!  They also needed underwear and wetbags to keep the dirty pads in.

It was amazing to see the generosity of everyone involved.  I decided to try my hand at making some and got 10 done fairly quickly.  I had never made them before, but they were pretty simple.  Here are the 10 I made up.

For some reason the post was removed on the forum and people wanted someplace to keep track of the progress, so I volunteered my blog here for that purpose.  I don’t have all the original information of how many have been promised or the link to the pattern a lot of people were using, but I will try to update this post as I get more information.  To all those who were originally participating, feel free to leave a comment with any questions or to let us know your progress.  You can leave the link to your pictures in your comments so everyone can take a look at your wonderful creations!
