Thank you for considering donating to the Life’s Little Treasures Foundation.
In the past year over 45,000 babies were admitted into neonatal intensive care and special care units throughout Australia.
This translates to over
- 115 admissions every day
- 1,300 of these babies weighed less than 1000 grams, which is lighter than a bag of sugar.
Premature birth is the number one killer of newborns
Not yet 8 days old and already Emily has conquered battles many will never face.
The Life’s Little Treasures Foundation aims to improve the lives of premature and sick babies by providing information and assistance to their families, and by supporting research.
We currently receive no government funding. We rely completely on the kind generosity and donations of individuals and organisations.
From the donations we receive, we are able to help hundreds of babies and families through:
- Informative web site and PDF information sheets
- iPhone app which provides critical medical information for NICU and SCN
- iPhone app which helps parents track their premature baby’s development
- Free hospital survival folder for parents
- Electronic home survival guides and e-newsletters
- Education based information seminars
- Community ‘Treasure Time’ playgroups
- 24 hour support line 1300 MYPREMMIE (1300 697 736)
- Parent support network
- Online community through Facebook/Twitter
- Family social activities/events (including our annual national charity fun run/walk ‘Walk for Prems’)
- Access and encouragement for family involvement in relevant research
The Life’s Little Treasures Foundation believes that education and information for parents is crucial to get the best outcomes for premature and sick babies; it empowers families and enables them to become their child’s advocate.
