Solidarity Call: Donations Of Food And Clothes For An Eight Months Baby

“Mon bébé de huit mois meurt de froid. Aidez-moi à lui trouver des vêtements chauds s’il vous plaît !” This is the appeal launched by Natasha. The mother, aged 36, lives in Cité Malherbe, Curepipe, in a hut built on a wooded state land.

Natacha And Her Baby Need Your Help

Natacha does not have access to drinking water and electricity and the mother depends on the help of her neighbors regularly. However, she lacks food and clothes for her little girl aged eight months.

“La nuit, raconte Natacha, ma petite grelotte et hurle car elle a froid. Les vieilles feuilles de tôle trouées n’arrêtent pas la brise qui envahit les trois pièces de notre case, qui servent de chambre à coucher et de cuisine.” Living in poverty, Natasha says she does not have enough income to afford decent clothes. Her family relies on the generosity of neighbors.

The woman once lived with her sick husband and four children with her uncle. On the latter’s death, Natasha was forced to squat the state land. “Nous n’avons nulle part où aller. Nous ne disposons d’aucun revenu mensuel, mon mari souffre de complications pulmonaires et ne peut effectuer des tâches ardues. Pour se faire de l’argent, il coupe des fatak pour en faire des balais. Il les écoule ensuite dans diverses boutiques. Hélas, c’est loin d’être suffisant pour couvrir les besoins de la maisonnée qui compte six bouches à nourrir.”

Natacha deplores the failure to offer only breast milk to her baby. “Quand je peux, je lui donne des légumes, du giraumon, du riz écrasé et des saucisses. Mes deux filles aînées ont dû abandonner leurs études secondaires en raison de nos difficultés financières.” The eldest, aged 18, got a job to support her parents. The youngest who is 15 stays at home. Only her 11 year old son is still at school.

We are calling for the help and generosity of Mauritius to donate for this poor mother:

The desperate woman is seeking public support for a food donation for her family and clothes for her baby. She can be contacted on 58 43 09 72.
