OxReach, a new crowdfunding platform for the University, was funded through the IT Innovation Fund.

The first project on OxReach is LIFE: Life-saving Instruction for Emergencies which will develop an app for low-cost smartphones to help save the lives of newborns in Africa by giving as many healthcare workers as possible the knowledge they need to provide life-saving treatment to mothers and newborns.

Visit the LIFE website to find out more and donate and/or promote the project if you wish. The project needs to raise £60,000 by 9 April - over £45,000 has been pledged so far.
