The Neonatal Trust hold a special place in Mojo’s heart. This small not-for-profit organisation provides support to families of premature or sick full-term babies as they make their journey through neonatal care, the transition home, and onwards.
Support is given through many channels such as the provision of Care Packs on entry to a unit, morning teas to bring families and experts together, provision of equipment for family use in the units, post-discharge playgroups and coffee mornings.
Every year approximately 10% of all babies are born premature (before 37 weeks gestation) in New Zealand. There are also full-term babies whose condition or illness requires admission to a NICU or SCBU after they are born. In all, over 5,000 babies have a difficult to start life in New Zealand each year.
Mojo donates coffee to the Neonatal Trust Unit team based in Wellington and continues to raise money for the Trust through our heart cookie fundraisers, used-phone collection, gift baskets and other initiatives. This relationship has been on-going for more than 15 years.
