Born on the Edge helps to improve newborn healthcare worldwide. Our mission is to save and support babies born on the edge of life, viability and society in the poorest regions of the world through education, research and sustainable support.

We need your help so please get involved in any way you can. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking:


Donate money to Born on the Edge and you will be helping save and improve the lives of newborn babies. A small amount of money can make a huge difference. Please visit our donation page for further details on ways you can donate.


Babies, especially those that are born early, small or sick, loose heat much faster than you or I. Many of them have no clothes or blankets to keep them warm during their stay in hospital. So if you are feeling creative, you can help by knitting hats, cardigans and blankets for our babies. Please contact us for patterns or more information about where to send your knitted creations.


Fundraising is fun but it can be daunting taking that first step. We have personal experience of fundraising using parties, hog roasts, triathlons, cake sales and even swimming the English Channel. If you need our help with ideas of ways you can raise money for Born on the Edge please get in touch.

We are in the process of designing and making our own t-shirts and running vests to help you with your fundraising, so let us know if you are interested and we will put you on the waiting list. Otherwise keep an eye out on our NEWS page for their launch.



We are currently training and supervising a number of local staff at our project in Mbale and therefore are unable to offer opportunities for overseas volunteers unless you are able to work as a long term volunteer (minimum six months but preferably one year). If you would like to support our local staff salaries then please don’t hesitate to get in touch, we’d be delighted to hear from you. 


Students that are inspired become inspirations themselves. When we were students we saw an absence of training and education in international health and so we set up a Global Health Group at our university to improve our knowledge of international healthcare issues. This is a great way to develop your own passion, to meet like minded people and encourage others to get involved. We would love to support you in doing this, so please get in touch.
