NextGen member John Kluge, Jr.

Neonatology in Ethiopia

In 2010, Next Generation raised $150,000 to help UNICEF equip a maternal and neonatal center in Ethiopia. With this donation UNICEF was able to work with the government of Ethiopia to establish and equip the first neonatal intensive care unit at a hospital in Addis Ababa and build the capacity of health care providers in relation to the special care of newborns.

In 2011, members of Next Gen were able to take a field visit to see the effect of their donation and the other work that UNICEF does in Ethiopia.
