Owing to your generosity, County Neonatal Care Unit (CNCU) program hospitals in Dali, Zhaotong, Yunnan and Liangshan, Dazhou, Sichuan are now trained and equipped with the equipment necessary to establish a specialized hospital unit to provide the care available to critically ill babies.

In Dali Yanjin People’s Hospital, the equipment vendor is instructing the health workers on how to use the Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), to provide air and oxygen to the lungs of sick and premature babies. Most often, lungs are not yet fully developed so babies struggle to breathe. For these small and critically ill babies, CPAP makes breathing easier and saves lives!
