2018/19 WINNER, APEC – Syrlia Selmi

  • By Syrlia Selmi · Indonesia, APEC

After giving birth to a preterm baby in 2015, Syrlia wanted to do something to help other mothers in a similar situation. She volunteers with Premature Indonesia Community, a non-profit that fundraises to pay for equipment that can screen newborn babies for a condition that – if not treated early – can lead to blindness.
