Féileacáin (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Association of Ireland – SANDAI) is a not for profit organisation (CHY – 19635) that aims to offer support to anyone affected by the death of a baby during pregnancy or shortly after pregnancy. The organisation was formed by a group of bereaved parents who supported each other after the death of their own babies and have now come together to formally offer support to other parents and families who have lost a baby.

Each fundraiser is appreciated so much. Any donation can mean a huge difference to a family who unfortunately need our services. Here are some of the ways in which your donations could help:

€50 could provide a Memory Box to a bereaved family to ensure they can make memories with their baby

€200 could fund our helpline for one month!

€150 could provide a facilitated Support Meeting for up to 30 bereaved parents

€300 could fund bereavement & befriending training for 20 volunteers
