A group of 22 people from SSCLF – Safety for Mothers and Infants Fund, led by Fund Chairman Ms. Qiu Haining, and Honorary Chairman Ms. Wang Yufen, paid visits to the funded project sites in Mile city and Kaiyuan city, Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture, southwestern China Yunnan province from December 13 to 14, 2016. In the past 7 years, SSCLF – Safety for Mothers and Infants Fund donated 75 pieces of medical equipment and instruments worth over 1.8million yuan for local maternal and child health centers, covering 54% counties and cities of Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture, playing positive effects in promoting maternal and child safety protection. During their stay at the Maternal and Child Health Hospital in Mile City, the delegation listened to the hospital director’s report on the use of the donated medical equipment and instruments, and they were extremely delighted to observe the young life in the neonatal jaundice treatment box. In the Maternal and Child Health Hospital in Kaiyuan city, an ambulance donated in 2012 has been travelling more than 60 thousand kilometers, transporting a total of 3,000 patients, and the hospital has become a national "Baby Friendly Hospital" and the city’s emergency rescue center. In the exchange between the two sides, the local medical professionals hope that the project of safety for mothers and infants may lay focus on the local medical staff training and medical equipment update, which are fully understood and responded positively from the delegation.
