Nowadays, more and more mothers in precarious situations are facing difficulties in raising their young children. They turn to the French Red Cross to help them to find answers to their problems.
To strengthen the support for these mothers and allow them to consider a better future for their children, it is necessary to develop new services.
The Espace Bébé-Maman located in Puteaux, a city near Paris, is primarily a place of welcome, listening and caring. It has become a refuge for mothers and their babies (0-18 months) who gather two or three afternoons a week.
These Espace Bébé-Maman are designed to meet the nutritional needs of babies and provide childcare to families in a precarious situation. As a friendly meeting place, the Espace Bébé-Maman also allow mothers to share and renew social ties.
French Red Cross’s volunteers - mostly women, including some youth and young retirees - give them plenty of time to rebuild and support them in their efforts to be self-sufficient families.
In order to keep assisting mothers in precarious situations and keep providing them with products such as powdered milk or diapers, the Espace Bébé-Maman of Puteaux appreciates and needs Pipelife's support very much.
