Made especially for premature babies, the womb simulators were created by a Venezuelan living in Peru.
One hundred womb simulators were donated to the National Maternal Perinatal Institute (INMP) by Venezuelans who currently live in Peru.
As informed by the news site La República, the president of the NGO Unión Venezolana en Perú, Óscar Pérez Torrez, made the donation and thanked the Peruvian people for their kind treatment to Venezuelans, who are fleeing from the crisis that their country is experiencing in the present time.
“When you see governments that bet on the growth of an institution it is because it is working well”, Pérez said during the donation, according to La República.
These womb simulators are made of hypoallergenic materials, which reject allergies and bad odors. They are used for premature babies, many of which are born from teenage mothers of parents with low incomes.
Érika Hernández, a Venezuelan who lives in Peru, was the creator of the simulators that were donated by this NGO. She outlined that this product will benefit thousands of children who are treated each year at the National Maternal Perinatal Institute.
The director of the Office of Research, Teaching and Neonatal Care at the INMP, Carmen Dávila Aliaga, stated that the simulators favor especially the children who are in the intensive care area.
