‘Nyano Nani’ Baby Warmers Donated by Jyoti Bikash Bank benefits more than 6000 babies

Jyoti Bikash Bank, through its CSR initiatives, has distributed Baby Warmer machines to 38 governmental and community hospitals across the country, benefiting over 6000 infants during childbirth.

These Nyano Nani Baby Warmers, domestically produced by the National Innovation Center led by Dr. Mahabir Pun, were made possible through the “Hamro Bikash Prabardhan Kosh,” a fund established by Jyoti Bikash Bank to support CSR activities. Baby Warmers, crucial for maintaining newborns’ correct body temperature, particularly in cases of Hypothermia, have been donated to 38 different communities and government hospitals, totaling 38 warmers valued at 32 lakh rupees.

In 2077, marking its 12th anniversary, the bank announced a collaboration with the National Innovation Center. The phased distribution included 10 Nyano baby warmers in the first phase, 13 in the second, and 15 in the third, making a total of 38 Nyano baby warmers over three and a half years. The initial goal of partnering with the National Innovation Center was to benefit hospitals and delivery cases, while also fostering the skills of youth to ideate and manufacture such equipment domestically.

The financial support from Jyoti Bikash Bank to the National Innovation Center has played a crucial role in scaling up the production of the equipment, which initially started as a successful demo. Recognizing that Hypothermia is a leading cause of newborn deaths in Nepal, this collaborative project directly addresses the issue by preventing temperature-related complications during pregnancy and after childbirth.
