LIFE IS SUPPOSED TO BE BEAUTIUL, BUT THERE ARE ALWAYS EXCEPTIONS.

Premature Baby Foundation of Taiwan makes up for the shortcomings with love

In a special issue, Kerry Hsu, the co-founder of WT, wrote about the 30th anniversary of the premature birth of her baby, saying ′′Life is supposed to be beautiful, but there are always exceptions! When we encounter life’s shortcomings, it is certainly a journey of extraordinary and miraculous events. This miracle is to witness the grace of life, to feel the resilient will of life to survive, to see a team of angels who guard premature babies, and to be so lucky as to encounter the medical quality that cultivates life’s silent call for help, to greatly enhance the right to live in the tug of war between life and death, and to return to the path of life’s beauty.′′

Thumbelina a Chance to Reclaim a Bright Future

The percentage of premature births in Taiwan now exceeds 10%. The impact of a premature birth on the child, the family, and even society as a whole in terms of medical expenses is considerable. The birth of a premature baby foretells a difficult process of growth, but with proper medical care, modern medicine can provide a high survival rate for premature babies. This is one of the goals of the Premature Baby Foundation’s long-term efforts: to support good quality medical care for premature babies and to reduce neonatal mortality and disability. 

According to the National Health Agency’s birth report for 2020, 16,517 newborns were born with a body weight of less than 2,500g, which is about 10.16% of the total number of births in that year. From 2015 to the present, the Foundation has invested a total of NT$ 8,088,903 in the prevention and treatment of premature births, the promotion of the tracking of pregnant women with high-risk pregnancies, and preventive health care during pregnancy.
