Together, we can save newborn lives – will you join us?

Support us

This Wednesday we were at Sóc Sơn Hospital for our third day of equipment deliveries to hospitals in the Hanoi Neonatal Network in collaboration with the Hanoi Department of Health.

 

The day began with us all working together to set up a new space for the nursery, creating a safe and caring environment for sick babies and their mothers. Once the new equipment was all set up, we went straight into training, with today’s focus being on jaundice and it was great to see both the doctors and parents learning together on how to manage one of the most common newborns diseases.

 

It’s moments like this that remind us of the Patient Care Promise that we made to every mother and baby that comes through the doors of any of the hospitals in the Hanoi Neonatal Network, and this week has been a big step in keeping to that promise.

 

Your fundraising is key to us being able to keep this promise and today we are focusing on our amazing running community, starting with the Chim Sao runners who ran fantastically well at Vietnam Mountain Marathon 2020, hosted by our wonderful long term supporters Topas Travel, and had their funds matched by Premier Oil. We are incredibly thankful to you, as well as the countless runners, cyclists and some very warm hearted celebrities who have raised funds and awareness over the years, you make everything we do possible.
