The generous “baby cuddler”
By Jinny Throup
Louis Mapp is in his 80’s and a great-grandfather, but he still volunteers in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of a hospital in Alabama (US). Once a week he drives to the hospital to hold, rock, feed and burp newborn babies whose families are unable to be there 24/7. His attention and love provides them with the vital human touch that newborns need. In addition to donating his time, Louis and his wife Melinda have donated one million dollars to the NICU. The Mapps are a heart warming and inspirational example of how important it is to help others.
