Send Cotton-Muslin Squares to Japan Tsunami Areas

London Mothers Praying for Japan
"Muslin Squares Project"


We are sending Muslin Squares to help young mothers and mothers-to-be in the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear affected areas in Japan.

Muslin Squares are large cloths used to wipe babies’ mouths, for breastfeeding or as burp cloths.

They are not traditionally used in Japan, but we know they will be extremely useful for mothers who are struggling to wash and dry clothes in the evacuation centres.

We have been contacted by NPOs, supporting organizations and maternity centres that are in desperate need of supplies for clean cloths for mothers.

We have already sent more than 1500 Muslin Squares to help, but they need many, many more.

As shown (above), we pack two large muslin squares per bag, and send them with instructions.


>>>Who is receiving them? Could it cause problems if we send goods directly?


In the affected areas, there have been some delivering and distribution problems when goods have been sent directly without contacting the evacuation centre in advance.

In this project, we don’t send goods directly to evacuation centres. Instead, we check how many Muslin Squares are actually needed and the majority are sent to the maternity centres in Tokyo. From there, the goods are distributed to the maternity and evacuation centres in the affected areas.

If we can’t distribute all the Muslin Squares they will be sold to mothers through maternity centres in Japan, with all the profits donated to those affected by the tsunami and earthquake.
