Newborns Vietnam

Saving babies from their first breath - advancing neonatal intensive care in Vietnam to help close the gap between developing and developed world standards of newborn care. Our work addresses the critical shortage of nurses, trained health workers and basic specialist lifesaving equipment.

Story

This is a truly unique challenge connecting the world of hospitality and local NGO,Newborns Vietnam, to make a difference to the life chances of thousands of newborn infants in Quang Nam and Da Nang. On Saturday 1st April I will paddle 40 kms up the Hoi An waterways and along the coast to Da Nang to make some very special collections from restaurants and hotels along the route with special events at the waterside as I greet friends and colleagues.

My paddling adventure starts at the Anantara, Hoi An at
9.00 am and 
a celebration launch at Cargo Café, Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, hosted by Ms Vy at 10.00 am, friends and supporters are welcome to join us. I expect to finish around 4 pm at the Hyatt.

In 2015, neonatal mortality accounted for three quarters of all infant deaths in Vietnam and more than half of mortality in under -fives.  Saving newborn lives, Support our Kayaking Chef!
