World Prematurity Day

Each year we try to do something to mark World Prematurity Day in Ireland. It can vary from Tree planting, balloon releases, book launches, publication of reports or coffee mornings. 15 million babies are born premature each year and over 1 million will die. It is really important as a charity that we mark this day to help create awareness of the problems faced by families when they have a premature baby.

How to organise an fundraising event.

You can organise a fundraising event yourself in aid of the charity. Our fundraising team will be happy to offer their advice, support and knowledge in helping you choose a fundraising event to raise funds .

Donate to the Charity

Irish Premature Babies is a non-profit charity. All members in the organisation are voluntary. We do not receive any funding or grants. To date the organisation has been funded primarily by two parents. 

Fundraise for the NICU's

Sometimes it’s just so hard to express your gratitude to the staff that looked after your baby while they were in the NICU. How do you say “thank you” enough times to truly articulate how grateful you are for everything the staff has done to help your baby?

"Ride out for Prems" Road Challenge of Ireland
