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

Support us

Thursday was the final day of our equipment handover to hospitals in the Hanoi Neonatal Network in collaboration with the Hanoi Department of Health, with Hoài Đức and St Paul Hospital receiving their deliveries.

 

Both hospitals operate in very different but equally important capacities within the Network and our focus at Hoài Đức District Hospital has been to enhance care for mothers and babies at birth and to set up a newborn nursery. St Paul is a referral hospital within Hanoi which has been working with Newborns for a while, with the doctors undertaking our UK neonatal training programme to support the care of babies with more complex needs and because of this, their new equipment is more specialised.

 

This week we have thanked a lot of wonderful people, but todays thank you is a little bit different; many of our CPAP Machines were funded by anonymous donors, and although we will respect the donors’ privacy, we would like to make it clear how thankful we are.

 

This week has been a huge success and we are overwhelmed with optimism and hopefulness towards the future of the Network, but there is still a long way to go. For example, every nursery we visited this week lacked a medical sink with hands-free taps and paper towels, which are crucial tools to keeping infection rates down and it’s challenges like this that means we’ll always keep on fighting to end preventable newborn deaths in Vietnam.
