Healthcare

Tembisa Hospital Ward 4

Main aim of the charity

Taking care of Preemie Babies and their mothers.

How the employee got involved and why

I have a preemie baby, I struggled emotionally and also getting clothes for my baby, being in that room can be both exciting and scary. Every day you walk in the small room and never know what to expect, some days are better than others, some days you need the emotional support and physical support. Seeing other mothers struggling to cope, not having enough breast milk to feed their babies, so I go to the hospital to assist mothers that are not able to produce enough milk, because over the period I have been at the hospital I learnt that when your mind is in the right place you produce more milk.

What work does the employee do for charity

I donate clothes and also off to take in one baby for one weekend. Also, i try to provide emotional support to the mothers of the babies, basically I am part of a few that has a preemie baby, I know what they both go through, so I want to try make their lives easier.
