$200 will provide an Embrace infant warmer.  When infants are born prematurely they lack the body fat necessary to regulate their own temperature.  This warmer assists low birth weight and premature infants suffering from hypothermia in developing countries.  The warmer costs less than 1% of an incubator, is durable, portable, hygienic, safe and effective and it can be reused up to 50 times.  India accounts for nearly 30% of the global total of neonatal deaths.  The state of Uttar Pradesh accounts for one-quarter of India's total neonatal deaths and 8% of those worldwide.  The neonatal rate for Uttar Pradesh is 50 deaths per 1,000 live births.  These warmers will be used in Raebareli, India, a district where over 90% of the residents live in rural areas.  Associated Organization:  Embrace is a nonprofit organization with a mission to advance maternal and child health by delivering solutions to the world's most vulnerable populations.  www.embraceglobal.org
