Para kay baby! QC Mothers donate breastmilk for Taal evacuees
A big thank you to all milk donors.
As Taal Volcano displaced thousands of families, mothers recently went beyond the call of duty and offered breastmilk to children in need.
Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte thanked the mothers for their precious donation coursed through the Human Milk Bank at a hospital in the city. Belmonte said the milk will be delivered to the babies staying at the evacuation centers in Batangas.
“Thank you to all the nursing mothers who donated breast milk to our Human Milk Bank at the Quezon City General Hospital. This breastmilk will be brought to the evacuation centers in Batangas for the babies there,” Belmonte wrote on Facebook.
“Breastmilk is best for babies and being in a crisis situation should not get in the way of their getting the best care,” she said.
She said they still welcome any milk donation from nursing moms. “Donations are still needed and are most welcome!” she said.
