Milk Matters - breastmilk bank in Cape Town
Milk Matters is a Cape Town based charity organisation that collects donated breastmilk to supply to premature babies deprived of their own mothers\` milk. For these babies` the donor milk not only gives them the best possible start in life` but can be literally life-saving.
All donors are screened and donated milk is tested and pasteurised` ensuring it is safe for the recipient babies.
Just 50ml of breastmilk can feed a baby of under 1kg for 24 hours.
Do you have excess breastmilk to donate? Demand for donor milk far exceeds supplies` even when limiting recipients to babies under 1.5kg!
No breastmilk? You can still help by making a financial donation. Every cent donated helps babies` just as every drop of milk does.
