About Us

Foundation of Irish Premature Babies

The charity was set up as a non profit organisation in December 2009 after the birth of Allison Fegan Molloy's second premature baby. He was just 10 months old still breastfeeding, with a two year old as well to look. Despite such young children, the need to develop an organisation for families of premature babies was something that just needed to be done.

Hospital Representatives

We have a number of hospital representatives. These volunteers will make sure that the units have adequate information leaflets in the units. The representatives will also be available for new parents who would like to know more about the charity or about their experience of prematurity.

What the Charity does

As a relatively new charity, we have a number of long term goals and objectives that we hope to achieve over the coming years. But what do we do now for parents and for the hospitals ? Below is a quick guide that tells you what we do and where we spent our time and money- 20 areas we work in.

This update section is to inform you of what we are doing and to show you some of our intentions in the coming weeks and months. We will be updating this section every month or so, so if you want to know what we are doing , read this section.

Finance

Irish Premature Babies is a primarily  voluntary run charity.  Our chairperson and founder has worked without payment for over 6 years, doing on average 30 to 40 hours each week.   Due to ill health of our chairperson in 2016, the board have had to take on a part time contract administrator.  The charity receives €10,000 from the HSE for our breastfeeding programme.  We rely entirely upon the volunteers within the charity to fund raise, we rely upon the support and generosity of the general public to help us.
