ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Brisbane-based charity sending pre-loved baby clothes to rural and isolated Mums | ABC News” – below is their description.
When a third bag bursting with pre-loved baby clothes was gifted to expectant mother Dee Malek as a maternity leave send-off, it sparked an idea to help isolated mothers-to-be.
Moved by the generosity of her friends’ donated onesies, as COVID-19 restrictions locked down the nation early last year, the thought of women in Australia’s rural and remote communities pulled at Ms Malek’s heartstrings.
The proud Njamal woman, who lives in Chermside, thought: “How do they get their baby clothes without going to the shops?”
Just three weeks later her daughter Jedda was born and that same week Ms Malek put out a call on social media for donations of used baby’s clothes in the hopes of sending them to communities in need.
Driving around Greater Brisbane, Ms Malek with her husband Weylon and daughter collected clothes from donors who had rummaged through cupboards to donate now-outgrown clothes still fit for use.ABC News (Australia) YouTube Channel
