We have so many babies on our waitlist who are waiting for a cot, car seat or pram and many of these families need urgent assistance. Please give generously so we can help families give hope for families like Chloe.
*** Trigger Warning – The below story refers to sexual assault and domestic violence
Chloe’s* pregnancy story isn’t the usual story of hope and fresh beginnings. Chloe was sexually assaulted by a trusted friend and is now expecting her first child. Though Chloe is battling with the ongoing trauma and effects of the assault, she has decided to keep the baby and has reached out for support to prepare for this new stage in her life.
Chloe’s social worker recently ask Dandelion for support with all the essentials for Chloe and her baby. She is hoping that assisting in this way might be a starting point to building rapport and that she will be able to continue to support Chloe in her parenting journey as well as provide counselling for her other complex issues.
Though we know we have only played a small part in what will be a long road to recovery for Chloe, it warms our heart to know her baby will have all that she needs to sleep, play and travel safely.
We have many families like Chloe currently on our wait list and are desperately low on cots, prams and car seats. For every donation of $200, we can support a family going through the unimaginable, with essential items for their baby. Please give generously.
