Pack for a Purpose

The Baby Box Project 

In a bid to help support the rural communities that surround our wonderful wildlife areas, Tshukudu has partnered up with Pack for a Purpose to help new mothers in need through the Baby Box Project in Mpumalanga, South Africa. As our guests, you will have the opportunity to 'pack for a purpose' by saving a small space in your suitcase to bring something as a donation for this compassionate cause. 


The Baby Box Project, based in Hoedspruit, is designed to provide support for new mothers at Tintswalo Hospital, which has the highest birth rate in rural Mpumalanga Province. Many of the newborn babies are in need of basic clothing items and their mothers are in need of sanitary and toiletry products that many of them simply cannot afford. Pregnant women in rural villages rely heavily on Tintswalo for the safe birth of their babies, and often the hospital faces severe staffing and resource challenges, creating an urgent need for maternal support. That's where the Baby Box Project comes in, and where we are glad to be able to help.


Via the Pack for a Purpose initiative, we are inviting you as our guests to save a couple of kilograms of space in your luggage and pack something that would help these mothers in need and their newborn babies. The Baby Box consists of items which are easy to find and take up very little space in your luggage. If you would like to help us create baby boxes, you can either build a starter pack yourself or pack a few extra items into your suitcase that we can include in the baby boxes destined for Tintswalo Hospital.


We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
