NICU Care Package

No one plans for Premature birth. That is why preemie babies, and their families need your support today.

Nov. 17th is world Prematurity Day, and Borngreat Foundation is putting together some little care packages to drop off at the NICU for families who have a baby admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

We spent 4 1/2 months in the NICU with Sike, so we know firsthand how exhausting facing the ups and downs of having a sick baby in the hospital can be. Borngreat Foundation is set up to give back to the NICU who helped save Sike’s life. They were so caring, loving, and supporting to us while we were there. In the past, we have only delivered our care packages to Dell Children’s Medical Center, Texas (U.S.A), and Stella Obasanjo Women and Children’s Hospital, Benin (Nigeria), but this year we are extending it to other NICUs in Central Texas. Any NICU stay is a roller-coastal ride. We always hope that our care packages help bring a little bit of light to a long, tough roller-coastal journey.

Your gifts have helped parents of preemies in the U.S., and in Africa a whole lot, and we thank you for your generous support.
