Satsuma set to work Miracles

| 27/10/2016 | 0 Comments

Satsuma to provide PR and business support to one of the country’s leading premature parent support organisations, Little Miracles UK.  The aim is to build on the excellent work of the organisation to-date and increase its reach, and also types of services and initiatives.

Little Miracles is a non-profit organisation set up in 2013 by campaigner Marsha Davis, who herself is a mother to four babies who were born premature.

Little Miracles UK, was originally set up to support families of premature babies in North Wales. This very quickly grew, out of need, and they now operate throughout the UK with 44 Regional Coordinators supporting a total of 49,720 families, this within their first two years.

Support is mainly via their Facebook page, which now has over 50,000 ‘likes’, making it by far the largest peer-to-peer organisation for parents of premature babies in the country, on this social media platform.

Little Miracles UK have also campaigned against maternity and neonatal unit downgrades to ensure the maximum safety for families in their communities.

In 2015 they campaigned against NHS service cuts for maternity and neonatal services in North Wales. Within 24 hours they set up a campaign group of 15,000 parents fighting as a community. Within 10 days they held a protest in which approx. 4000 parents and children attended. The case was eventually subject to a judicial review and the decision was overturned. In autumn 2016 funding for a new £18m sub-regional neonatal intensive care until was approved.

Satsuma’s MD Godwin Ohajah said, “This is an excellent cause and one that we are proud to support. Little Miracles UK have helped 1000’s of parents of sick and premature babies over the years and we want to help them increase that. But perhaps more importantly increase the types of support; in the UK and even further afield.”

Marsha Davis commented, “Satsuma have done some excellent strategic work developing and growing initiatives for small non-profit organisations. They have already come up with some very strong ideas for Little Miracles which, with their support, we will be looking to implement over the next 12-18 months.”

The latest Little Miracles UK campaign is for mental health support from the Government for all parents on every neonatal unit throughout the UK. Click here to read more and to sign the petition [Link to release on Satsuma page]
