NICU (Neo-natal intensive care unit) Helping Hands of Texas USA has been set up to provide support for families with premature babies.
The founder of NICU Helping Hands was heartbroken at the sight of grieving parents sifting through hospital donated clothing to find something to clothe their infant for their last moments together.
She felt there must be a way she could help other mothers in this horrible predicament. NICU Helping Hands collect wedding gowns from all over the US and then make these loving little 'Angel Dresses' from the wedding gowns. In turn these dresses are then donated to the NICU units at hospitals nationwide.
This is a wonderful use of a rather expensive dress which is often packed away and not used again.
I do hope there is something similar to help those in this horrible situation in the UK.
