WaterWipes is proud to launch the Pure Foundation Fund, a new bursary fund in the USA and Canada, which recognizes the incredible work of all healthcare professionals involved in the pregnancy, birth, and postnatal journey.

Nominations are now closed, we look forward to announcing the Pure Foundation Fund winner soon!

Make your nomination by completing the 'Nomination Form' at the bottom of this page.

Maternity and neonatal healthcare professionals touch the lives of expectant and new parents, both physically and emotionally. From the first scans and prenatal care; to the hands that deliver the baby, care for a premature baby, and support parents and newborns when they leave the hospital. These are the hands that bring so many lives into the world. That is why WaterWipes want to recognize and celebrate the incredible work of these professionals – to put faces and names to these hands and to tell the remarkable stories of the lives they have touched.

Win $3,000 (USD) & WaterWipes Pure Foundation Fund Plaque

Two winners will be selected from each country, and the winning healthcare professionals will receive:

  • $3,000 (USD) for their department to continue to improve the care of parents and babies. For example, purchase equipment, provide resources for parents, fund training, improve practice/care or support further research relating to pregnancy, baby care, and neonatal care

  • A WaterWipes Pure Foundation Fund plaque.
