Every day in Vietnam, 80 babies die or suffer brain damage before their first month and there are over 1.2 million with cerebral palsy, mainly from lack of oxygen after birth. Using a simple device, costing only $100, a trained healthcare worker can successfully save a baby and prevent brain damage.
Please join us to provide Breaths for Newborns!
Infant mortality represents more than 51% of deaths in children. We have joined with International Relief Teams (IRT) to bring the newborn resuscitation program of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to Vietnam. The Newborn Care Initiative was developed over 10 years ago to improve life-saving services to babies through training and advocacy.
Over the years, 85% of the provinces in Vietnam have received training, and PVNF continues to strive to reach the last ten. Over the last three years Project Vietnam Foundation has trained 240 instructors and over 3,800 healthcare workers as well as establishing 14 training centers.
Our goal is to raise $60,000 to save infants. Please donate to provide life-saving Breaths for Newborns . Your contribution will be used to purchase CPR kits and to expand training to rural areas.
PVNF’s primary mission is to help the children of Vietnam through medical missions that offer primary care, dental care and surgical correction of birth defects such as cleft and lip palates and eye and vision disorders, as well as other reconstructive surgeries. We also offer training programs for health care professionals on programs for children.
