Touching Lives - September 2017
Help save tiny lives
In the UK alone, around 61,000 babies are born prematurely each year and tragically more than 1,000 babies die each year after being born too soon, making premature birth the biggest killer of babies in the UK. It is also a leading cause of disability in those children who survive.
Despite the enormous impact on babies and their families, research into premature birth and other pregnancy complications is still under-funded, limiting efforts to develop new treatments.
This is why we’ve launched our new Saving Tiny Lives research campaign – because at Action we believe that only by investing in research can the devastation caused by premature birth and other pregnancy complications be stopped.
We’ve pledged to fund £750,000 of vital new research over the next three years through our Saving Tiny Lives research campaign and have begun fundraising to support this.
