Breastmilk Donations for Babies affected by Typhoon Sendong

Under the Milk Code, government agencies cannot accept infant formula donations – from milk companies or individuals.

Infants in evacuation centers in areas hit by Sendong need breastmilk. If you’re in Metro Manila, here are some places you can donate breastmilk (info from Daphne Osena-Paez’s Twitter feed):

  • Breastmilk Bank – 17 Green Grove Villa, Lantana Rd., Barangay Mariana, New Manila, QC (office of Kalusugan ng Mag-Ina, Inc)
  • In Manila, drop off for breastmilk UP-PGH Human Milk Bank, 4th Floor, Left Central Block (LCB) c/o Tina or Grace or the NICU Fellow.

Freshly expressed breastmilk can last 3-4 months freezer. UP PGH Human Milk bank has a pasteurization machine so the milk can last longer. Breastmilk will be transported by UNICEF and its partners.
