Loddon Mallee Kids (LMK) is a not for profit organisation that offers information, advice and ongoing support to the families of premature babies.
In 2011, 1169 babies were born at Bendigo Health. Of this 360 babies (a massive 30%) went through the Special Care Baby Unit which offers care to sick and premature babies.
Children born prematurely face continued physical and developmental challenges from birth up to school age and sometimes beyond. As parents of premature children ourselves, we understand the emotional hardship that this can have on the families of those children and seek to offer not only ideas, guidance and suggestions to help the child overcome their physical and developmental challenges but also emotional assistance through empathy, friendship and understanding for their family as a whole.
This is primarily achieved through our fortnightly premmie playgroup and weekly hospital visits to meet with the families of newly born premature babies.
LMK relies primarily on corporate sponsorship and philanthropic donations to operate. With your help, we can make a difference. Each year we hold a fundraising dinner in Bendigo. Funds raised from each dinner go directly to providing essential resources to help raise awareness of the group and run our fortnightly playgroups.
