Each Baby Box is outfitted with a custom, certified non-toxic mattress so that it can be used safely as a bassinet.
Moses Basket Appeal
New mothers in camps across Greece are struggling with nothing to care for their baby. Here in UK we buy new or are lucky enough to be given items by our friends or sisters. But imagine everyone around you is in same position. All living in a tent in a over crowded refugee camp....
More than 1300 expecting mothers come to the maternity hospital every month, to receive essential care and to protect their pregnancy. #syriarelief
We are lucky enough to be able to provide Baby Boxes for mothers in Syria.
Otherwise know as Finnish Baby Box.

For 75 years, Finland's expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It's like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world's lowest infant mortality rates.
It's a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it's designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they're from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby's first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box's four cardboard walls.
Each Baby Box measures as follows: 26 3/4 X 16 3/4 X 11 1/2 inches.
The Bed Box serves primarily as a safe, comfortable place for infants to sleep, similar to a bassinet. Once the baby has outgrown the box, it can be re-purposed (unlike a bassinet) as a storage container.
Please note: the lid is NOT for use while the baby is inside the box!! The lid is intended for storage purposes only.

• SIMPLICITY.Baby Boxes’ simple design works to their advantage—the various pieces, slats, etc...which make up other infant sleep space designs can actually and do often contribute to infant injury.
• STRENGTH. Boxes, more so than almost any other toy on the market, have been shown to strengthen children’s imaginations, aiding in their brain development.
