Just a few years ago they were officially called “fetuses” and had no chance of survival. Today newborns whose weight is more than 500 gram are CHILDREN who can stay alive... What allowed saving their lives were the intensive care units for low-weight newborns, one of which is operating in the Zaporozhye Regional Clinic for Children. Since the Intensive Care Unit started its operation, more than one hundred of newborns were given a chance to live.

Ivan Anikin, Head of the Intensive Care Unit for Newborns

Currently the Intensive Care Unit of the Zaporozhye Regional Clinic for Children urgently needs components for artificial lung ventilation apparatus and sensors for oxygen saturation monitors. These devices are vital for the life and health of the smallest children of our region!
