Our story began 3 years ago when even after 4 years of marriage and consulting too many doctors I wasn't able to deliver a child. And finally in 2018 I gave birth to a baby girl. But our happy moments didn't last long as the baby I gave birth to was a still born. This incident had hit me hard and I cried for a week continuously and depression started eating me up.
Finally after my husband helped me get out of depression a bit, we decided to adopt a child and went to the nearest orphanage. While going through the process of adoption, we talked to founder of the orphanage a lot only to find out the miserable condition of those abandoned children whom they are giving a new life. Lastly we adopted a girl child.
Now every time I spent time with my lovely little one, although I was happy, still thoughts about the miserable condition of those abandoned children would eat me up. In order to see a little smile on their face, we started visiting the orphanage with surprise gifts weekly. But very soon I realized that for an ordinary housewife like me, it wasn't possible to bear the expenses.
Then my husband suggested that we should start an online baby products store. This would help in 2 ways :-
First, we could use the revenue to share gifts to orphanages
Second, we could donate 20% of our revenue to Orphanages, SOS children villages, NGOs, NPOs and various other organizations who are working for the well being of these abandoned children. And that's what we did. We started MAMA HUGS™ to give all those children the warm and caring MAMA'S HUG that they deserve but never got.
Today MAMA HUGS™ is a successful online baby products store operating worldwide and changing a thousand lives.
