The Mondiale LifePod

Meet the LifePod, our simple invention set to change the
world. The more you give, the more of these we can build
and the more little hearts we can keep beating.

How does the LifePod work?

Today's incubators just aren't designed to work in the hostile developing world environment. They are expensive and need constant repairs and maintenance, purified water and uninterrupted power supplies, LifePods don't.

LifePods purify their own air and water and run for ten years, saving up to 500 little lives for a fraction of the price of existing incubators.

How can I help?

Please donate what you can, then share this via or . Together let's change the world and #KeepLittleHeartsBeating.

Get your school involved

Your school can help produce the LifePod Infant Incubator and save millions of babies' lives. We've put together a fundraising school pack loaded with educational material to get you started. Your help, no matter how small, is appreciated. Any school that raises $2,000 or more will have their name inscribed on the LifePod they've helped us to build.
