Lack of warmth is a huge problem experienced by many populations across the globe. At Warmilu, we decided to focus on premature infants because our CEO Grace Hsia was born 4 weeks premature and was kept alive by the warmth of an electric incubator. Unfortunately, not all babies are so lucky.
1.5 million premature infants die annually due to hypothermia-related causes in resource scarce settings. Most of these fatalities are due to a lack of basic access to electric incubators and other life-saving sources of warmth.
