„We may be Tiny but we aim to make a big impression“
Our heartfelt congrats to TinyLife, our partner organisation from Northern Ireland, for 30 years of committed and sustainable support for preterm babies and their families.
Since 1988, TinyLife has been dedicated to reducing preterm birth, illness, disability and death in babies born in Northern Ireland.
The charity was founded as NIMBA (Northern Ireland Mother & Baby Appeal), back then, they were the only charity for preterm and vulnerable babies in Northern Ireland. Healthcare professionals and concerned parents joined forces as a growing number of babies required special or intensive care at birth.
In 2006, they changed their name into TinyLife. For 30 years, they been funding research in the fields of newborn and maternal health and in family support services. However, identifying and addressing deficits in follow-up services for all those affected by preterm birth and offering very practical and emotional help for parents and families with preterm born or ill babies, is another pillar of their work.
We are thrilled how TinyLife established such a valuable network of support for so many families.
