World Breastfeeding Week 2018

In support of World Breastfeeding Week 2018, iThemba Lethu Breastmilk Bank celebrated the campaign by inviting local donor moms, clinic and hospital sisters and members of other baby houses around Durban to a morning educational tea.

Dr Penny Reimers gave a talk on the importance of breast feeding and human milk banking.  Donor mom, Carys, shared her experience as a donor.

“On behalf of iThemba Lethu Breastmilk Bank, we would like to thank the donor moms who express and donate their breastmilk so generously for the benefit of the vulnerable babies in the transition homes!” Joelle Gibson – Breastmilk Bank Administrator
