Infant’s Life Saved by Supplies Sent by HOHNW

Last year for Idaho Gives Day we sent a container of supplies to three birthing centers in the Philippines. We just heard how one infant’s life was saved by what was sent. This baby girl was born just a few days before the shipment arrived with a rare condition that caused her not to be able to suck.  When Todd Aebischer was informed about the baby’s condition, he told the nurse to look in the boxes of supplies as there could be something to help. Sure enough, there were five special bottles that are designed just for an infant with this problem!
