ROTARY COMMUNITY BREAST MILK BANK CHARITABLE TRUST INC
Is an initiative supported by the Rotary Clubs of Garden City, Christchurch, Papanui and Riccarton. We are very grateful to St George’s Hospital who have given us rooms for the milk bank situated on level one at St George’s Hospital.
Our aim is to work with midwives in the community to provide easily accessible donor human milk to the parents of babies who need a short-term gift of donor milk. We hope to ensure that all babies in need can have access to pasteurised donor milk for at least the first six weeks of life, in the hope that this will support the mother to continue to exclusively breastfeed her baby for a longer duration.
