Drakes raise more than $12,000 for Mater Little Miracles

We could all do with a little more hope and joy in the early stages of 2022.

Drakes and its customers have provided it.

We’re pleased to report the 2021 Drakes Supermarkets Christmas Bauble Campaign, in support of Mater Little Miracles, has raised $12,440. Well done!

These funds will enable more mothers and unborn babies in rural and remote communities to access vital ultrasound care.

Earlier diagnosis of life-threatening complications and better predictions of which women may be at risk of developing serious complications during pregnancy and birth lowers the risk of foetal distress and devastating stillbirth.

Sadly, global estimates exceed 2.6 million deaths annually in the antenatal and intrapartum period, while at-risk infants are also vulnerable to severe hypoxia-related morbidity.

There is a clear imperative for effective methods to identify at-risk pregnancies and interventions to reduce perinatal mortality and severe neonatal morbidity.

Mater would like to acknowledge Drakes and their customers for their generous support.
