First Breast Milk bank opens in Makati

Some 200 women donated breast milk to the country’s first community milk bank at the Guadalupe Nueva barangay hall, Makati City Thursday to help babies who could not be breastfed by their mothers.

The community milk bank is a project of Senator Pia Cayetano, chair of the Senate Committee on Health and Demography, in coordination with the Makati City health department and Makati Representative Abigail Binay. “The idea is to tell moms who are breastfeeding to take it a step forward, to help other moms who cannot immediately breastfeed,” said Cayetano.
