Modalities: The Campaign for babies at risk

The “Little Campaign” emerged fifteen years ago when a missionary, who was concerned about the birth of a premature baby – born at the seventh month of development- took a Pilgrim MTA to the family. For fifteen years, the Pilgrim MTA, in a small picture, has accompanied babies who are struggling for their lives and their parents. In the beginning, it was only for premature babies, later it was for children, who were ill with cancer and children whose lives were in danger even before they were born.

For at risk babies

Many times, the missionaries take the “Little Pilgrim MTA”, a small picture in a Moses basket, to the babies who are in the neo-natal stage, place it on the incubators where the small baby is struggling for his/her life, or they take it to the parents; they also commit to help them concretely.

In many cases, they take care of the siblings of the at risk baby while their parents accompany him/her in hospital, which at times is hundreds of kilometers away; they take care of the clothes and lodging for those who sometimes leave their homes in a rushed emergency without packing a bag.  In many hospitals with neo-natal wards or oncology wards for children, there are waysides shrines of the Blessed Mother.

In many of these hospitals, the doctors on call, and the firemen or priests have the phone numbers of the missionaries of “The Little Campaign”.  “The Little Campaign” has extended from Argentina to Paraguay, Mexico and occasionally it is used in many other countries.
