On 23rd April 2020 we were left devastated and heartbroken at the loss of a huge part of our charity when Dr Vish Rasiah sadly lost his battle to Covid-19. Vish was our ambassador, advisor and more importantly our friend. Vish was a Consultant Neonatologist at Birmingham Womens & Childrens Hospitals and was also Network Lead for all of the Neonatal Units in the West Midlands.

Libby Mae's Little Angels are launching an appeal in his memory to raise £500,000 to provide state-of-the-art incubators to all 14 Neonatal units in the West Midlands, to give vulnerable babies the best possible start in life And to help keep Vishs memory alive.

Libby Mae's Little Angels was formed in 2013 by Richard and Charlotte Sharratt who tragically lost their daughter, Libby Mae, at just two weeks old. Since then Charlotte and Richard, together with their team of volunteers and patrons, have worked tirelessly to fundraise for and provide the necessary medical equipment needed to look after babies on neonatal units across the Midlands.

Libby Mae's Little Angels 'Little Angels BIG Appeal' aims to raise funds to purchase 14 cutting-edge incubators for the regions hospitals. The incubators use ground-breaking technology to regulate body heat, maximise efficiency for clinical staff, and integrate families in their babies care. Using three heat sources, the incubators help to keep tiny patients at their ideal body temperature at all times, which is vital because a baby's energy is directed towards growth and development, rather than keeping warm. The incubators also feature low sound and light levels to create a womblike atmosphere and have advanced safeguards against infection. The kangaroo mode allows parents to closely interact with their baby too. All this technology helps premature babies to stay healthy, to better bond with their parents, and to ultimately go home sooner.
