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

Support us

Through last year’s successful Giving Tuesday appeal, we were able to raise funds to supply 2 Emergency Boxes to 6 hospitals in and around Hanoi, but due to Covid-19, we were unable to source any boxes that met the high standards required for hospital level Emergency Boxes.

 

Thankfully, our friends from Shopee swooped in and saved the day by providing the perfect boxes that more than met our requirements of being strong and able to withstand constant opening from doctors carrying it from one emergency to another.

 

Every day, babies are born too sick and too small to breathe on their own. In these situations, every second counts and having an Emergency Box filled with essential lifesaving tools close at hand is crucial in this early struggle. Thanks to Shopee’s heroics, as well as everyone who donated through Giving Tuesday, we were able to get this vital equipment to where it needs to be to help our amazing doctors and nurses from Bac Thanh Long, Dong Anh, Duc Giang, Gia Lam, Hoai Duc and Soc Son hospitals save more babies every day.
