World Breast­feed­ing Week (1-8 Au­gust)

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - HEALTH -

Did you know that 900 000 child deaths could be pre­vented glob­ally each year and 137 mil­lion chil­dren could grow up tall with­out stunt­ing if all chil­dren were breast­fed? Milk Mat­ters is an NGO that serves to im­prove the health of moth­ers and vul­ner­a­ble ba­bies by pro­mot­ing breast­feed­ing and as­sist­ing moth­ers one-on-one. You can sup­port Milk Mat­ters this month by contributing funds on­line or do­nat­ing your breast milk – just 50ml of donor milk can feed a baby of un­der 1kg for 24 hours and po­ten­tially be life-sav­ing.
