Many Maasai-women deliver their babies at home. They often live far from the hospital and do not have proper transportation to get there. After giving birth, the woman gets blood from a cow or a bull (depending on the gender of the baby). They mix the blood with milk and drink it in order to regain some strength. In the few months after birth a mother only eats warmed-up food. The Nanginyi Foundation offers maternity packages to new mothers in need. The package of €10 consists of: rice/beans/maize, sugar, tea, soap, body lotion and cooking oil. The package of €15 also contains a small Maasai cloth for the new baby. With the purchase of this maternity package you can make sure that a Maasai woman has enough means to recover after giving birth and to take care of herself and her new baby!
