THE team at SK Energy in Wellingborough are supporting a fundraising campaign after seeing close friends suffer the heartbreak of losing their baby boy.
Aahran Raja Patel died in December aged just 26 days after being born with multiple abnormalities. He was cared for in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Kettering General Hospital.
In Aahran’s memory, his parents, Malini and Rahul Patel, have launched a fundraising campaign to raise as much as they can for the NICU at Kettering General, with all funds raised going towards purchasing a new Giraffe incubator at a cost of £35,000.
On their fundraising page, Malini and Rahul say: “When we look back at Aahran’s life and the memories we were able to build in the short time we had together, there’s one group of people that made it all happen - the doctors, nurses and healthcare assistants in NICU at Kettering General Hospital.
“An incubator is home for so many poorly newborns and premature babies in their early lives. They are there to create a safe environment whilst they receive treatment and grow. Another incubator would allow the team in NICU to treat one more baby at a time, especially when things get busy.”
Reemesh Patel from SK Energy, said: “We are supporting the fundraising efforts to try to help other parents and babies in the same situation by providing another vital piece of equipment that could help the hospital team save another baby’s life.
