This included polio vaccines, mosquito nets, oral rehydration salts sachets, therapeutic food, scales, and many other vital resources to ensure babies survival in vulnerable countries around the world. She explained in a letter to the public that in her excitement and nervousness of becoming a first mother she realized that she was taking for granted that her newborn child would be born in a hospital with all the resources necessary to ensure a healthy birth and upbringing, unlike many mothers who don’t have the luxury of basic resources due to inequalities of resources around the world.
