Pure Foundation Fund Terms and Conditions
To be nominated, individuals must be registered as a UAE licensed healthcare professional, specifically working in the field of maternity or neonatology. Individuals must also work in a privately or publicly-funded healthcare service in the UAE to apply.
Healthcare professionals and parents / expectant parents can nominate an individual specifically involved in neonatal and maternity care. Healthcare professionals can also nominate themselves. All nominations from a healthcare professional should outline how the individual has gone above and beyond to provide an exceptional level of maternity or neonatal care and how they have contributed to improved medical practice and/or improved outcomes for babies and their families.
Healthcare professionals nominating themselves can only nominate themselves once. Healthcare professionals and parents/expectant parents nominating others, can nominate more than one healthcare professional.
There will be two winners for the UAE market. One nominated by a healthcare professional and one nominated by a parent / expectant parent.
Each winning healthcare professional will be awarded a prize value of USD 2000 for their department / unit to continue to improve the care of parents and babies. Payment will be made via bank transfer to the department / unit that the winner was associated with at the time of the submission. This could be used towards the purchase of equipment, fund training, improve practice or support further research relating to pregnancy, baby care, and neonatal care. The winning healthcare professional will be asked to confirm with WaterWipes how the grant amount is intended to be spent. If the winners withdraw from practice, or transfer to another unit, university or hospital, the prize fund will be non-transferable and will remain within the original winner’s department.
The prize for the parent / expectant parent who provided the winning nomination
The parent / expectant parent who provided the nomination of the chosen winner will receive a six-month product supply of WaterWipes i.e. a WaterWipes Mega Value Box.
