A non-profit organisation that supports families of premature babies who find themselves in an unexpected and unplanned journey. We have been assisting with newborn baby essentials since November 2019.
Moshala Mothiba launched the Mahlogonolo Thobile Foundation in November 2019, to support families with premature babies. The organisation is named after our daughter, Mahlogonolo, who introduced us to the world of preemies. This is based on my personal experience as a preemie mom to a now 8-year-old princess.
When I gave birth to Mahlogonolo, there were no South African stories to guide me through premature birth. Instead, the internet was flooded with international stories I could not relate to, such as child birth weights and milestones being told in a different language. I sought for atleast African stories that I could relate to. The experience prompted me to tell our story so the next preemie mom does not have to go through what I’ve experienced then.
No matter how difficult the journey feels. God is still sovereign, keep your energy positive. If you feel deflated, please don’t go visit. Consider taking a day off to recuperate, the baby is well taken care off in NICU. Call in to check up on the warrior and you'll be given a comprehensive report of your baby development on that particular day
For many of us, the journey started very challenging. God send His angels to comfort us on this journey as we continue to thrive with our miracle baby. Grateful to be part of Preemie Moms Tribe since August 2021. My family appreciate their love and support through out our NICU stay and post graduations
That period alone was very stressful and challenging for me, navigating pregnancy during COVID. Twin A grew wings at 6 months, may his soul continue to rest in peace. His brother is currently receiving medical assistance as the Dr's discovered that his milestones are delayed. Thankful to have found the foundation on facebook and they have been my pillar of strength together with the Preemie Moms Tribe.
We gained a family through the foundation as they understood what we went through. Losing a mother due to complications after birth, to a baby coming home to granny. The foundation has been a blessing for the family together with the preemie moms tribe. May God continue to give the founders strength to support many more families out there. For the tribe to continue to raise awareness about premature birth by continuously sharing their experiences on this journey
