Typhoon Haiyan Victims Need Breast Milk Donations, Not Formula | #typhoon #charity

Dirty water aside, formula donations could also dissuade mothers to breastfeed their babies. Breast milk donations will not be accepted from outside the country for the same reason. Dr. Jessica Anne Dumalag, of Manila’s Philippine General Hospital’s (PGH) Human Milk Bank, told Gulf News, “If you’re a breastfeeding mom, you can help ease babies’ plight in Visayas and other Yolanda (Typhoon Haiyan)- hit areas by sharing the milk you give your own children. Milk from lactating mothers is preferred over formula milk, which is basically processed cow’s milk.” Breast milk donations will be pasteurized, frozen, and stored in insulated containers before being shipped to evacuation centers in needed areas. An estimated 12,000 babies will be born in the typhoon hit areas, so breast milk donations are greatly needed.
