Baby blankets found a home

The wonderful donation of baby blankets,through the support of Barbara Escalante, from the labor, delivery and post partum staff of Mercy Gilbert Center in Gilbert, Arizona, and www.leighsblankies.com  found a home! They were distributed last month as gifts to pregnant women in a Hogar Materno in the mountains of Santa Rosa de Copan. Hogares Maternos exist for women who live at great distance from the nearest hospital or where public transportation is unreliable. Women come here one to three weeks before their due date to wait until labor begins. Dar a Luz is very grateful for this wonderful gift. In a mountainous region like Santa Rosa, women often cannot afford baby blankets, which are particularly essential in the mountains where temperatures may be significantly cooler especially at night.
