Tell your friends, family and work colleagues to get baking, because June is Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) awareness month.
What is CDH?
CDH is a birth anomaly, which affects around 1 in 2500 births and has a survival rate of just 50% at the moment. It is not fully understood how or why CDH happens, but babies born with CDH are treated in high level neonatal intensive care units and can spend months in hospital. It is normally diagnosed at the 20-week scan, but not always, and many children suffer from lifelong complications such as long-term oxygen dependency or feeding issues.
How can you help raise awareness?
CDH UK is a volunteer-run charity and ‘Bake 4 Babies’ aims to raise funds and awareness for CDH. You can get involved by baking and selling your creations at work, school, playgroups and anywhere else you can. If you would like to help by holding a Bake 4 Babies event to raise awareness, then please email [email protected] to receive a fundraising pack.
The committee has seen some amazing creations over the years, so why not get involved and bake up a storm for a good cause today!
