Call for donations: Used children's clothes

Published: 14 December 2015

Do you have children's clothes lying at the bottom of your drawers or in the back of your closets because your children have outgrown them?  Were these clothes so cute you couldn't bring yourself to get rid of them?  Did you ever wonder what you could do to help children in need but didn't know what to do?

The Venda Health Examination of Mothers, Babies and their Environment (VHEMBE), a birth cohort study investigating the impact of environmental exposures on child health and development in rural South Africa is looking for used clothes for children aged 3-4 years.  Clothes will be donated to study participants, many of whom cannot cope financially with the clothing needs of their rapidly growing children.  Please contact Dr. Jonathan Chevrier at jonathan [dot] chevrier [at] mcgill [dot] ca if you can help.  Clothes must be clean and in impeccable condition.

Thanks so much for your help and happy holidays.
