THE NEED IS GREAT
The alarming statistics emerging from Niagara Falls, paint a distressing picture of the challenges faced by newborns and their families in this area. Infant mortality rates in these areas are 3 to 4 times higher than the New York State average, a stark indicator of the dire circumstances under which these babies are born. Large percentages of babies born at NFMMC require CPS intervention or are placed in foster care.
Donations to support disadvantaged babies born at Niagara Falls Memorial can provide critical resources and essential infant care items. These contributions can be life-changing, offering these infants a fighting chance at a healthier start in life, which is a fundamental right of every child, regardless of their birthplace.
