We are delighted that the incoming president of the Birmingham Law Society, Mushtaq Khan, has chosen to support the Tiny Babies, Big Appeal Charity at Birmingham Women’s Hospital.
‘Tiny Babies, Big Appeal’ raises funds to help support the care of sick and premature babies and their families across the West Midlands. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Birmingham Women’s Hospital is the largest unit in the region caring for over 1,500 admissions every year.
The Law Society will be supporting our appeal by raising funds to purchase Panda Resuscitaires for the Neonatal Unit. The hospital requires additional Panda Resuscitaires which are mobile units for babies who need breathing support when they are being transferred from the delivery suite to the Neonatal Unit. This equipment is specially designed to help keep babies warm and monitored whilst they are on the move in the hospital.
Mushtaq is a local partner with law firm Freeths based in Birmingham and he has a calendar of fundraising events throughout the year which will include an abseil at the Women’s Hospital.
Chief Executive, Professor Ros Keeton stated: “We are delighted that Mushtaq Khan, in his new role as President of the Birmingham Law Society, has chosen to support the Charity of Birmingham Women’s NHS Foundation Trust. We very much appreciate the offer to raise funds in order to purchase vital life-saving equipment to help care for the babies at Birmingham Women’s Hospital. We look forward to working with Mushtaq and the Birmingham Law Society over the upcoming year.”
Incoming President Mushtaq added: “I have chosen to support the “Tiny Babies, Big Appeal” at Birmingham Women’s Hospital as it is such a worthy cause. Fundraising for the appeal means helping some of the smallest and sickest babies and their families. The purchase of additional medical equipment means staff will be able to care for even more babies in Birmingham and the West Midlands”
