Malabon City officially launched on September 25 the first Human Milk Bank in CAMANAVA.

Malabon City Mayor Lenlen Oreta led the inauguration of the facility, located at Ospital ng Malabon (OSMAL), which aims to give free breast milk to infants, especially those with medical conditions.

“Human milk is indeed life-saving,” said Oreta, a known health and nutrition advocate, “Nawa’y maging instrument ang ating milk bank para marami tayong matulungan at masigurong may access sa human milk ang mga bata, anuman ang kanilang estado sa buhay.”

Dr. Mitzi Tanchoco, medical director of OSMAL, said the new facility will collect, sterilize, test and store safely the human milk that has been donated by breastfeeding mothers and provide it to infants in need.

The Human Milk Bank, which includes a pasteurization machine, human milk analyzer, peristaltic pump and freezer was established with the help of the Rotary International.

Malabon Councilor Enzo Oreta noted that the establishment of the Human Milk Bank boosts the city’s implementation of its ‘First 1,000 Days of Life’ Ordinance, which provides care and nutrition to mothers and children at the most critical time of their development.

Meanwhile, a Kiddie Corner which will provide therapy for children confined at OSMAL was also opened on Wednesday. The materials, toys and books included, were donated by St. James Academy, High School Batch 1969, in cooperation with Awesome Gratitude Foundation, Inc.
