Your purchases will benefit children from families at social risk! Many of the products sold are made at Saúde Criança headquarters by mothers who have already been assisted by the organization. Sorry, but our online shop is only available in Portuguese, and we deliver only in Brazil.
What has kept me involved with Saúde Criança for so long is my absolute belief in their competency and integrity.
