Hashtag Prematurity Awareness Campaign
#hugs4preemies #fight4preemies #iampreemie
The public and parents of preemies are encouraged to join the hashtag campaign #Hugs4Preemies and #IamPreemie on twitter, instagram and facebook to promote continuing awareness of problems related to prematurity. Stories and photographs related to prematurity with a #Hugs4Preemies banner may be uploaded to create awareness. Parents of premature infants in Malaysia are encouraged to share the story of their journey via our SuperPreemies facebook page, and on twitter as well as instagram. We would also like to invite those who would like to support us by helping us highlight our causes by becoming our social media partner.
Fight for Preemies
The committee will highlight the following causes throughout our campaign. To urge that all employers in Malaysia will ensure that parents of premature infants and of infants who require intensive care as soon as they are born are accorded the necessary assistance and support.
- Infant-Care Leave: That extended maternity leave (fully paid) are provided by all employers, for all mothers whose infants require admission to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
- Critical Baby & Premature Infant Support: That parents whose infants were critically ill at birth are provided the necessary support by employers, e.g. specific carer’s allowance, hospital payment support, or supported leave days.
