What is Embrace?
Embrace is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving the lives of premature and low birth weight babies in the developing world. Our award-winning Embrace Warmer costs the fraction of a price of an incubator, doesn’t require constant electricity, and is portable, hygienic and reusable. Our training and education programs help moms, parents and caregivers prevent hypothermia and care for premature infants. So far, we’ve helped over 50,000 low birth weight and premature infants in 11 countries around the world. We rely on donations to provide our infant warmer to communities in need, and to provide the education and training necessary to stop children from dying preventable deaths related to hypothermia.
Where will my money go?
Embrace partners with clinics and hospitals in cities and rural areas around the world, and this Mother’s Day we’ve identified 3 Embrace programs in need of funding and warmers to save lives.
Uganda: Mulago National Referral Hospital
Mulago Hospital, located in northern Kampala, is the largest government-run hospital in Uganda. The hospital has suffered significant budget reductions and staff shortages for the last several years. There are so few beds in the maternity wards that some women give birth while lying on the hospital floor. It is also not unusual for one nurse to care for up to 30 infants during the day and 45 infants during the night.
Afghanistan: Rabia Balkhi Hospital
Rabia Balkhi Hospital is a major maternity hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan. Women travel great lengths to receive care at Rabia Balkhi, and the hospital is overcrowded and overstretched. In winter, the harsh weather makes it even more important to keep newborn infants warm. Maternal and infant mortality rates in Afghanistan are among the highest in the world.
India: Santhemarahalli Health Center
Santhemarahalli is a community health care center in Chamarajanagar, a district in southern Karnataka, India. Maternal healthcare services in this impoverished, rural community are limited, and Santhemarahalli provides critical basic medical care to women and children in the region.
