Addressing the emerging issue of newborn deaths in Egypt due to the lack of proper healthcare facilities, Abu Baker Ahmed launched an initiative to provide free incubators for infants of less fortunate families.
Newborn deaths and permanent disabilities are staggering in some parts of Egypt where the lack of proper incubators and Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) in hospitals fail to save health complexities.
After watching infants die out of their parents’ inability to afford 1,200 pounds a day in private facilities, Abu Baker Ahmed launched an initiative to provide free incubators to families in need.
With the help of volunteers and donors, Ahmed, a medical professional at an infant incubator facility in Luxor, succeeded in saving 450 newborns in less than a year after providing incubators and medical equipment worth 1.5 million pounds.
The initiative today offers 30 incubators, with Ahmed’s aim to double the number and save more lives with the help of the community.
Newborns saved today will grow to spread hope and build a brighter tomorrow. Help someone today and watch the seeds of hope flourish tomorrow.Make hope… Make a difference
