WPP Neonatal Mission

The World Pediatric Project (WPP) is currently hosting its 6th Neonatal Intensive Care Mission to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, during this week.

Neonatal Care is Intensive Care provided for babies who have serious health problems, resulting from issues such as premature birth or extremely low birth weight.

Jaqueline Brown King, WPP Director for the Eastern Caribbean, told NBC News, this mission commenced on Sunday and while they have an extensive team coming into the country for the mission, they are also training local health care providers to continue the work.

Meanwhile Team Leader for the Doctor Robert Fleming, WPP Neonatal Mission, said during the week they will be focusing extensively on respiratory therapy among other issues affecting babies.
