The day a baby is born is the most dangerous day of life in rich and poor countries. Babies born too soon are at risk for hypothermia, breathing difficulties, infections and impaired development.

Be a catalyst for change – Be a baby’s lifeline

Each newborn has the promise of a life – of love, family and achievement. In Vietnam, many children never get the change to live beyond their first day, and the promise is lost.

Every nurse we teach teaches 10 more

We bring best-practice care, education and systems to Vietnam, from the farthest rural areas to the busiest city maternity hospitals

Ensuring newborn survival, one minute at a time

From the moment they’re born until they are safe at home, a baby’s first month carries the highest risk

New lives are counting on YOU

Let’s celebrate every life – together.

It only takes one day to jeopardise the gift of life

Help us ensure newborn survival – run, bike, hike, DONATE today!
