We could help save the lives of sick and injured children by connecting doctors with a global network of Paediatric Specialists ready to assist remotely.
Many children's lives are lost due to the lack of paediatric expertise.
Millions of children are physically affected by war, infectious diseases and natural disasters
The problem is…
In times of crisis, access to paediatric expertise is limited and in many cases this leads to suboptimal treatment
As a result…
Quality of life is reduced and thousands of children die every year due to the lack of speed and quality of care
Save A Child was founded by renowned humanitarian Sally Becker who has been helping to save the lives of children in areas of conflict since 1993. Her work has been well documented, especially during the war in Bosnia where she brought medical aid to besieged hospitals and evacuated sick and injured children, earning the nickname 'Angel of Mostar'.
Whilst medical evacuations can really make a difference, it isn’t always possible to transport a patient due to restrictions on movement or because the child isn't stable. Doctors and field medics often lack the specific training required to treat children during critical events and lives are lost due to a lack of paediatric expertise. There is an urgent need for specialist help – a network that transcends borders, reaches remote communities and connects doctors and nurses to the resources they require in order to help save children’s lives.
Save A Child is working with experts on every aspect of our programme, including Telemedicine from Professor Richard Wooton, medical expertise from our eminent Board of Advisors, and health innovation know-how from LEO Innovation Lab (LEO Pharma).
