Together, we can save newborn lives – won’t you join us?

Support us

As we all make efforts to support Vietnam during this global pandemic by standing with the government, health professionals and our fellow citizens, Newborns Vietnam would like to alert you to the opportunity to support two hospitals in Hanoi. Duc Giang and Bac Thang Long general hospitals are participating in our neonatal training programme and currently also providing care for Covid-19 patients. The Hanoi Department of Health has let us know that specific equipment is needed to help them fight the virus, and you can help.

Newborns Vietnam is bringing forward its commitment to provide oxygen saturation monitors to support better care for sick newborns at these hospitals. The monitors can be delivered now and used for the Covid-19 fight, and when the fight is over, transferred to the neonatal unit to continue to save lives. There is no risk of infection as a new clip is used for each baby.

The monitors are a critical tool for individuals who have health conditions that may affect oxygen saturation levels. Such as Covid-19 acute respiratory distress, and provide information about the effectiveness of ventilation. This valuable tool will then support care for newborns with chronic lung disease.

The other items that would be equally useful are portable x-ray machines and infusion pumps (which deliver medication). The cost per item is:
– Oxygen Saturation (SpO2) Monitors: 40,000,000 vnd
– Infusion Pumps: 38,500,000 vnd
– Portable X-Ray Machines: 1,980,000,000 vnd

Our target to support our health care colleagues is 10 Saturation Monitors, 12 Infusion Pumps and 2 Portable X-Ray Machines, can you help us get there?

If you would like to join our effort to support our health colleagues, email us on mai@newbornsvietnam.org. We can advise on how to purchase directly from our local supplier, or we can buy on your behalf.

Please share this message; we all have a role to play!
