About Tiny Beating Hearts Initiative


Tiny Beating Hearts Initiative was founded to raise awareness on prematurity as well as provide support for families and caregivers of babies born too soon.

Globally, an estimated 15 million babies are born preterm annually. According to the World Health Organisation, Nigeria ranks third amongst the ten countries with the highest number of preterm births with 773,600.

At Tiny Beating Hearts, we know that the experience can be very traumatic for everyone involved which is why we exist to give hope, support, encouragement and help for a journey on a partnership which is lonely and tough. More importantly, we take the message of prevention to rural areas even as we do not ignore urban residents because we know no one is immune to prematurity.

So long as the heart beats, however tiny, TBHI is always there to root for victory!

You are welcome.
