A Bag, A Life – A word from the Founder

A Bag, A Life is a permanent initiative that is very close to my heart and part of DeMellier's DNA as much as our aim to create beautiful yet attainable products and to cherish all the smart and very special women around the world.

As a mother, aunt and godmother, I struggle to come to terms with the endless void that the loss of a child creates. Some of us are incredibly lucky to have been born or raised in countries where we get the best available medical care.

Millions of children don't have the same luck and are dying from preventable diseases at a terrifying rate. For every item you purchase, DeMellier funds lifesaving vaccines and medical treatments aimed to save the life of a child in need, in collaboration with international children's charity SOS CHILDREN'S VILLAGES and local vaccine providers. The funds are administered in countries such as Somalia, where currently 1 in 6 children do not live to see their 6th birthday. So far we have funded over 260,000 vaccines and treatments and I can’t thank you enough for your help with this cause.

With love,

- Mireia Llusia-Lindh, Founder of DeMellier

A Bag, A Life & the COVID-19 crisis

In the light of the current global health crisis caused by COVID-19, our permanent charity initiative A Bag, A Life, which has been core to our DNA since our launch, has never been more critical.

SOS Children's Villages, whose mission is to protect and provide a home to unsupported children around the world, is working tirelessly to protect vulnerable children from this pandemic which could have devastating effects in countries such as Somalia where DeMellier has been funding vaccines and treatments through the years. Following WHO guidelines, children and staff in high-risk countries are staying within the SOS Children’s Villages, and visits from people outside the Villages are restricted. At the same time, the levels of cleaning and hygiene awareness have been increased and staff have been urged to put in place Emergency Preparedness Plans and are being provided with masks and other protective equipment to ensure they are able to continue to take care of the children.

DeMellier is committed to continue to support such an important and necessary cause during this time and we would like to say a very warm "thank you" for your purchases that make it possible. Discover SOS Children's Villages work and how you can support them here.

"Sadly, we won't be able to eradicate child mortality, but if we can help save the life of 1 child, 1,000, 10,000, 1,000,000... It will be well worth the effort.

So far we have funded over 260,000 vaccines and treatments, thank you so much for your support and for joining our little crusade..."
