Our neonatal team in Vietnam

From October 9-23 Dr. Millard and 3 neonatal nurses from Chicago worked at Children's Hospital in Saigon and visited Lam Dong, to train healthcare staff in Neonatal Resuscitation and donate CPR kits basic unit of care at rural areas in the Central Highlands. The medical skills are the only effective intervention to reduce infant mortality and prevent brain damage. Thanks to volunteers like Dr. Millard and her team, we have steadily improved newborn health for the last 12 years. Many guidelines have been adopted from Vitamin K after birth to prevent brain bleeding to essential resuscitations... In 2015 we will again join the International Relief Teams to continue building capacity for the safety of the babies.

Helping Babies Breathe...The Beginning of Life

With improvement in healthcare access, infant deaths has been cut by half in Vietnam. However most of the deaths is concentrated in remote areas where mothers still deliver at home with or without health attendant at birth. About 35,000 newborn babies die because they fail to take that first breath. Join us to be the one to help them have a chance at life!
