Young and travelling the world, yet millions millions of babies die each year because they do not have access to good neonatal care. That can now change, I came across this ingenious creation the LifePod Baby Incubator designed by New Zealand Inventor Sir Ray Avery and his team who have collaborated tirelessly on this ingenious creation..
What is so special about the LifePod?
Traditional incubators are simply not designed to work in the hostile environments of developing nations. They are expensive, they cost around NZ$44,000 each and need constant repairs and maintenance, they rely on purified water and uninterrupted power supplies.
LifePods however are very different and have been designed to work in the harshest of environments.
LifePods purify their own air and water and run for ten years, saving up to 500 little lives for a fraction of the price of existing incubators. Each LifePod costs only NZ $2000 to produce and can save hundreds of babies’ lives.
We can save a life by donating as little as NZ $20. In fact schools in New Zealand are coming on board with their own fundraising projects “Little Hearts Helping Little Hearts” saving a life for as little as NZ $2 #keeplittleheartsbeating
It’s going to take NZ $2 million to produce enough LifePods to make a real difference.
NZ $2 Million is a lot to ask for – even if it’s for a great cause, so please donate what you can, then LIKE, COMMENT below and please SHARE this via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or anywhere else. Together let’s change the world and #keeplittleheartsbeating
You may also be interested to follow efforts in our other charity cruising efforts to help remote communities in Vanuatu where ultimately we hope to send 20 Life Pods. They are desperately needed to be distributed throughout the many islands and remote communities in Vanuatu. The following image is taken at Teoumu East School a remote school my husband and I and a couple of friends visited while cruising to Vanuatu in 2015. On this occasion we took much needed school supplies including books, and had lovely day reading with the children.
In New Zealand mondialelifepod.com have created school packs in an effort to offer fundraising opportunities for the school communities. The School Packs are designed to be educational, inclusive and inspiring and above all are designed to educate young minds in their role and social responsibility contributing to making the world a better place. These School Packs are full of information, posters, ideas, stickers and activities, educational and fun.
Kids love to give, if you have children, big or small, or you are involved with a school or could help introduce a School Pack to any school, mondialelifepod.com would love to hear from you.
In fact, Schools or groups that raise enough money to buy a LifePod even get their school name on the LifePod and can choose which country their LifePod is sent to – an amazing opportunity for our young people to really be involved. The challenge now is to give a little to give a lot.
