The Foundation’s mission is a deep and personal one: Keep Mikaeel's name alive.
He was a baby born sleeping. Even though he didn't take a single breath, speak his first word or take his first step - his journey started long before he was conceived and he's already had a positive impact on a number of lives, including babies in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) . For a life not lived at all, his story is a remarkable one and in death, he has created a legacy.
Our goal is simple: To enable people all over the world have a better quality of life and save lives where possible.
Due to the nature of Mikaeel’s death, we would like to help as many babies and children as we can - whether it's through providing medical aid, assistance during a calamity or natural disaster, enabling them getting an education or even as simple as helping them have a better quality of life (if they are underprivileged). We would also like to provide support for mothers through pregnancy, miscarriages, stillbirth and child loss.
To go a step further, we would also like to provide aid and assistance to parents facing hardship – whether it’s a natural disaster, war, famine, medical emergency, psychological therapy, education for their other children or financial assistance to get through a difficult time.
Although we have our own Foundation, we support other causes that share similar values. Since Mikaeel's death, we have been working very closely with Sands (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Service) and promoting them, fundraising for them as well as using events they have been leading on to raise awareness around miscarriage, stillbirth, and neonatal deaths.

In the face of societal and cultural taboos, many of us find ourselves silenced, our voices stifled by fear and conformity. This talk will challenge these restrictive norms and inspire you to break free from the shackles of silence.
I will share my personal story of navigating the profound pain of baby loss, an experience that shook my world as I knew it. Yet, amidst this darkness, I discovered a newfound strength and courage to shatter the taboos of baby loss.
