Project: “Socks for Life”

“Baby Story” invites everyone to join our warm project – Socks for Life! We represent this international initiative for all people in Belarus who are interested to change life of prematurely born kids to the best.

Each pair of socks is an individual gift and will get to the child in maternity hospital or at its extract home. Nearly 5000 children annually are born in our country before the put term. Their full development and health is directly connected with existence of the necessary supporting funds from the birth. And woolen socks are necessary to those children not only for heat. They help a lot with process of nursing of prematurely born children and perform other important function – stimulate blood circulation and remind them that it is necessary to breathe. The improved blood circulation stimulates in turn development of internals. Woolen things don’t allow the child to stay asleep for a long time, slightly pricking him. The child wakes up, moves and begins to breathe better.
