It was then that Allan Chilvers suggested to setup a society for raising funds to buy life-saving equipments for premature babies, like incubators. This led to the formation of BLISS (Baby Life Support System). In the next five years, Bliss raised a large sum of money to donate equipments to 82 hospitals.
