SIMBA (Simpson's Memory Box Appeal)
SiMBA aims to provide the precious Memory Box to any Maternity Unit which wishes to have them, as we believe that anyone who suffers the loss of a baby deserves the simple, but precious box.
The blanket of Love programme started in Australia in 1992, involves giving small quilts to parents of babies that die during pregnancy or close to the time of birth. The quilts complement the existing bereavement programs in hospitals.
The small quilts are used to wrap the baby when parents are saying good-bye to their child. Parents have something to cherish, this keepsake which is often kept in their Memory Box.
Since its inception, the project has grown from one hospital in Sydney to hundred across Australia and overseas. In addition, New Zealand, Europe, the United States and Canada have all begun their own blanket of Love programs.
