Neonatal Incubators Donated to Dhaka Shishu Hospital
Abinta was a caring soul who thought about the children of our country. She believed that children from all the different walks of life had the potential to become great. Alongside this, she wanted to work towards the development of underprivileged children and help them lead a better life. It pained Abinta to see the death of infants due to health complications. She always wanted to avert their untimely death and promote good health of mothers.
The Abinta Kabir Foundation has been formed as a legacy to the memories and ideas of Abinta Kabir. The foundation hopes to work towards the development of children, less fortunate citizens of the country, acid victims and such. Keeping respect to this, the foundation has been working in many social endeavors. Recently, the foundation donated four neonatal incubators to the Dhaka Shishu (Children’s) Hospital.
The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is a specialized intensive care unit in a neonatal and children’s hospital. It specializes in the care of ill and prematurely born infants. The neonatal incubator at a NICU is used to maintain optimal environmental conditions that are suitable for a neonate or a newborn baby. It is used especially in the case of preterm births or for some babies who are born with severe health complications. A modern incubator includes a blood pressure monitor, an oxygen hood, and a ventilator. All of these aim to help the baby recover and get well soon.
At the distribution ceremony of the neonatal incubator at Dhaka Shishu Hospital, the PDGs, DG nominee and the Director of the Hospital were present. There were other staff members too and representatives of the Abinta Kabir Foundation. This donation by the foundation is only an attempt to fulfill one of the many legacies left by Abinta Kabir.
