More happy babies in Khairkhana hospital, Kabul

Some babies were in such a deep sleep that we did not want to wake them up and dress the outfit on them but just gave to the mother and placed the sweater and the hat on the top of the baby.

Happy babies with new sweaters in Khairkhana hospital, Kabul

34 babies had been born in the 24 hours before we distributed sweaters, hats, sock and blankets. This baby boy is a lucky one to receive HOBI outfit.

in Dashte Barchi clinic in western part of Kabul

Newborn baby girl receiving today a HOBI outfit in Dashte Barchi clinic in western part of Kabul! There had been 11 babies born during the night but most of them had been already sent home with their mothers because of the patient rooms not having heating in the clinic. Therefore the sweaters, hats, socks and blankets provided by HOBI are highly appreciated! Thank you!

Happy New Year 2014!

Thank you for all the wonderful work and collaboration we have had with people around the world. The original name of this knitting project was "Omeed-e-kodak" which means "hope of the babies" in dari language, which is one of the official languages of Afghanistan. That is the reason for the name of this blog. But we have now changed to "Hope for the Babies International, HOBI" because the activities have expanded. We have not been updating this blog recently because we have much more followers on Facebook and we get quick feedback from there. And we are also working on a proper website which will hopefully open in this month of January 2014.
