KangaWrap: our partnership with Trade4Life

Christian Aid partnered with Trade4Life to help fund maternal and child healthcare in the developing world.

For every sale of a KangaWrap product, £5 was donated to help support Christian Aid projects in El Salvador and Honduras. 

KangaWrap

What's a KangaWrap?

The KangaWrap is a fair-trade baby wrap developed by midwives at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells hospital, following their award-winning research into 'kangaroo care' (skin-to-skin contact).

Made of stretchable, organic cotton, the KangaWrap provides optimum support for mother and baby, from newborns to babies up to 15kg.
 

Helping keep women and girls healthy

Trade4Life donated £10,000 in total:

  • £5000 to our project in Kenya, helping 19% more women access skilled, safe delivery services
  • £5000 to support women and girls in El Salvador and Honduras access reproductive and sexual health services
