Giraffe Incubators (BabyLeo)
Each incubator costs $50,000, and generous donors like you have already stepped up to deliver two incubators to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in 2021. Now the NICU needs two more by 2023. New equipment, like these additional incubators, are not funded by the government. All equipment must, instead, be funded by you: the supporters in our communities.
In September 2021, we granted over $88,769 to the Hospital for the two initial Giraffe Incubators.
