How can your donation help?
We use the donations made in the ‘I love to help’ environment to support the smallest patients of Tallinn Children’s Hospital, i.e. premature newborns.
We want to do everything we can to ensure that premature babies, who have to fight for their lives in hospital after birth, have the best conditions and treatment facilities.
Profoundly premature newborn babies weigh very little, they need to recover and grow in an incubator and their vital functions are supported by a range of equipment. Most recently, we purchased a fully digital mobile X-ray machine with the donations made in the ‘I love to help’ environment.
With the support of good donors, we would now like to purchase an echocardiography machine for the children’s hospital. Echocardiography is a method of examining the heart using high-frequency ultrasound. It is the main test for diagnosing and monitoring congenital heart defects before and after surgery. The biggest advantage of echocardiography is that it is non-invasive, so it can be done safely for everyone, including very small premature babies. The cost of the new state-of-the-art device, including the necessary accessories, is around €250,000.
We also support the creation of a breast milk bank in the neonatal and infant ward of Tallinn Children’s Hospital with the help of donors. Breast milk is particularly important for a baby born premature or sick. Unfortunately, it is not always possible for a baby to breastfeed from their mother – either because the mother doesn’t have any milk yet, because the mother is ill herself and cannot breastfeed, or because the mother and baby are not together in hospital. In a difficult situation, a breast milk bank will provide an immature or sick baby with donor milk and the best possible treatment outcome.
