Ohbaby Initiatives: It's Easy To Give When You Receive

In celebration of Mandela Day we have started an ohbaby charity drive. Now when your ohbaby order is delivered, you can give us items to donate to a local baby shelter! Every few months we will choose a baby shelter to help.

This month ohbaby is doing a donation drive in Cape Town for Ubuntu House. Ubuntu House opened it's doors in 2003 and since then they have:

  • Cared for 528 babies
  • Placed 425 with adopted parents
  • Reunited 93 with birth parents

Right now, Ubuntu House has 12 babies in their care. ohbaby is donating baby food & with your help hopefully we can cover some other necessities (Cape Town Only).

Don't know what to donate? 

Nappies, formula, clothes... you name it!

Other specific essentials they need:

  • Coconut oil & tissue oil
  • Cot mobiles & sitting donuts
  • Medicine for cramps
  • Long life milk, sugar, tea, coffee for caregivers who work late nights & early mornings
  • Bottled water
  • Refuse bags

Prefer to donate cash directly? Ubuntu House donations will go towards:

  • Cots
  • Caregivers salaries
  • The purchase of a vehicle
  • Fuel
  • Telephone & municipal bills

Bank details:

Ubuntu House, ABSA Bank, Acc. No. 4058 668 032, Branch Code: 632 005, Reference: ohbaby donation

Absolutely love this initiative.

Do you know any baby charities in Jhb? My son is turning 1 next month and we’ve asked for formula, nappies, wipes etc instead of presents for him so just wanted charity recommendations.
