In November 2014 we will celebrate the 4th worldwide awareness day for prematurity. In 2013 more than 60 countries worldwide celebrated the day and raised awareness for prematurity, newborn and maternal health. 1,4 billion people around the globe were reached. Last year, our art project SOCKS FOR LIFE was a big success.

Warmest thanks to all of you who joined in!
