Why we do this?
Currently* (2017 Census), South Florida has a 14.7 percent of its population living in poverty. At With Love Miami, we want to assist the community as much as possible so we can create a dent in future poverty levels. By volunteering and getting involved we hope to bring awareness and educate surrounding communities.
Globally 2.6 million babies died in the first month of life, approximately 1 million dying on the first day and about 1 million dying within the next 6 days of being born. Studies show newborns who die within the first 28 days of birth suffer from conditions and diseases associated with lack of quality care at birth or skilled care and treatment immediately after birth. Many of these families are living in extremely impoverished areas and a care package like this can help in a tremendous way. Our mission is to reach as many families as possible and ensure that these newborns receive the basic care they deserve.
