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

Support us

Newborns started the week with joy and celebration as we congratulated nurses from Duc Giang, Dong Anh, Hoai Duc and Gia Lam hospitals for completing the final week of nurse training for hospitals across the Hanoi Neonatal Network!

 

Over the past 3 weeks it has been wonderful to see all the nurses embrace the importance of baby focused care and we have been incredibly moved to see each group eager for more training on how they can quickly identify the needs of the babies in their care and keep them happy and healthy.

 

We could not be more proud of the St Paul teaching team who put together an amazing course, devising the pre and post course tests along with lectures and hands on practical training, thereby creating a sustainable programme that passes on the knowledge learnt from our UK lecturers as well as drawing from their own wealth of experience to teach the next generation.

 

A huge thank you to all our runners, supporters and sponsors who have made the last three weeks possible, it is through your support that we now have 36 more nurses trained and ready to apply the knowledge they have learned to impact on 18,000 babies across 6 Hanoi Network Hospitals.
