Human Defense Initiative is excited to announce our latest fundraiser for an expecting mother in need!
Joeli is a 20-year-old, hard-working, single expecting mother and will soon be welcoming her first child, a baby girl.
Joeli moved back in with her parents upon finding out she was pregnant at 19. Her parents are very emotionally supportive, but they cannot monetarily support Joeli and her baby. Other than her parents, Joeli does not have any other family for support. She works five days a week anywhere between 9-12 hours a day. She also lives on a farm and assists with taking care of the animals when she is not working. The baby girl’s father is away at college and does not help financially at all. His family is also not involved nor likely to provide any support.
While Joeli does have a few baby items, her due date is quickly approaching at the beginning of October. So, she reached out to HDI for help with the bigger ticket baby items – a bassinet, car seat, and stroller as well as some smaller items such as sheets, bottles etc.
Sometimes expecting mothers need a helping hand. Here at Human Defense Initiative, we want all mothers to feel confident that they have what they need to love and provide for their babies.
Let’s show Joeli and her daughter some love and support during this next journey in their lives!
