Here in the Philippines, a Representative of San Jose Bulacan, Congresswoman Rida Robes is currently working on having a hospital clinic designated for breastfeeding moms.
In which a milk bank is currently designing by doctors from Taiwan and with its technology they aim to provide all residents of San Jose Bulacan to benefit from it especially low income earners family and mothers who will have difficulty in providing breast milk for their new born babies.
Breastfeeding moms will undergo screening before they can donate their breast milk. Milk will be collected and stored in a special freezer. Babies 6 months and below will be prioritized in their milk bank since this is the crucial stage of any infant and needed good amount of nutrients and vitamins that only breastmilk can provide.
As soon as their hospital will be operational, and if the local government can extend help to donate breastmilk to nearby towns – they will do so.
We hope that the whole country will have a technology that Representative Rida Robes vision in San Jose Bulacan.
