Nertila, making life easier

Nertila was referred to us by the Snowdrop Project, who work with survivors of trafficking and modern slavery. She has three children aged 9 months, 2 years and 4 years old, so life is pretty hectic! The Building Bonds Project helped her to find a sling that will allow her to carry either her nine month old or her two year old and make life a bit easier for her. (The carrier was a Beco Soleil, donated by the Sheffield Sling Surgery).

She said: “Building Bonds were fantastic. They helped me find the right sling and showed me how to use it with my youngest daughters. We are having a fun and exciting time, all together. When I arrived home after the fitting, my second one wanted to sleep, so I used the sling to help her get to sleep, while I was making some lunch for my older girl. Building Bonds, thank you very much for your help and your support. I love it now I have less back pain because I can carry my girls comfortably.”

Feedback from the Snowdrop Project

“Since she has had the sling, our client has been able to carry her 9month old baby. This means she has her hands free to be able to support her 3 year old so he can practice his walking, and now he can walk to nursery. There has been a huge improvement in his walking and this is in part thanks to the Building Bonds Project. You’re making a difference to some of the most vulnerable and we are truly grateful.” Helen Jones, volunteer at the Snowdrop Project for survivors of trafficking and modern slavery.
