Shree Prajapati Association Birmingham in conjunction with Birmingham Mochi Volleyball Team is to work together to raise £5000 to purchase a Defibrillator for our partners The Medlife Foundation. In the past we have been successful in raising funds to purchase 2 neo natal incubators and 2 pulse monitors.
On Saturday 2nd April 2016 a Dinner and Dance will be held at The Tower Mount, 90 Reservoir Road, Edgbaston to raise the funds. We will have committee members coming round to sell tickets. Tickets can also be purchased from the hall on a Thursday evening from 7.00pm till 9.00pm. The children whom are helped are from the poor of poorest people in India. Some of the children are abandoned by their own families, because of the craniofacial deformities.
So let us come together and change the lives of many children to give them a second chance in life. A chance that they will appreciate and be grateful.

What is a Defibrillator
A defibrillator is an electrical device that provides a shock to the heart when there is a life-threatening and very rapid erratic beating of the heart. What the defibrillator does, it provides shock that basically shocks the heart to stop so that it can start rhythmically contracting again. It’s an incredible life-saving tool that is literally saving thousands of lives a year.
