Baby Care Center

Babies make excellent props when begging from strangers. Desperate women take their babies with them to beg and often loan their babies to other women to help increase their collection. Eunok Roy works with mothers to teach them the importance of caring for their infants in a safe, clean environment. GNCEM began a daycare center for babies from slum families. The babies are brought to the Baby Care Center each morning, are bathed, fed, and given clean diapers and clothes. Early intervention will pay future dividends in these young lives, and the daycare offers mothers the opportunity to leave a life of begging and pursue gainful employment.
