Messer Vietnam Industrial Gases announced today that they will partner with East Meets West Foundation on the Newborn Care Initiative to improve the neonatal intensive care nursery at Binh Duong Hospital.

The project was chosen by Messer’s country manager Don Kuhlman because of its connection with one of the company’s products, medical gases for respiratory care.

Stefan Messer, owner of Messer Group, said: “With our Dr. Hans Messer Foundation we focus on helping those who are less fortunate in countries where we operate.”

The project is part of a nationwide effort by East Meets West Foundation to reduce mortality rates for premature babies in Vietnam. East Meets West has launched the Newborn Care Initiative in conjunction with Project Vietnam of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the International Children Assistance Network (ICAN) to provide training and place equipment in hospitals and clinics across the country which will help save the lives of premature babies with respiratory distress.

Messer has been located in the province since 1999 and is currently expanding its operations in the province.
