Bringing Warmth to 100,000 Babies

Commitment by

Embrace Innovations

In 2015, Embrace Innovations committed to help save the lives of 100,000 babies across sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia with the Embrace infant warmer. Embrace warmers are an innovative solution to regulating the temperature of vulnerable infants; the warmers do not require a constant supply of electricity, and they cost a fraction of the prices of existing solutions. Embrace Innovations’ nonprofit partners will help with the implementation of the infant warmers on the ground in sites where they are working on newborn care, including government and NGO hospitals and clinics. Embrace Innovations will provide funding to partner organizations to procure warmers and to conduct all relevant training. To fund this initiative for the next three years, Embrace Innovations is launching a new line of baby products in the US called Little Lotus Baby. For every US product sold, Embrace will donate $25 to their nonprofit partners for one baby to be helped by the Embrace warmer in a developing country; covering all training and logistical costs.
