Compassionate Burials For Indigent Babies (CBIB)

Thousands of babies die every year and do not receive a proper burial. Please help us change that.

What We Do

CBIB, Compassionate Burials for Indigent Babies, is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 2007 to ensure that unclaimed and aborted babies receive a proper burial. 

Life Is Precious

We take all the little souls left behind, and we give them a proper burial. It’s the only decent thing to do. All these sweet little babies, we celebrate their short life, we name them, we clothe them in dignity, we make the time and place for them, and we acknowledge to the world their short existence and their humanity.
