  • Our Milk Code prohibits donations of formula milk because it can be dangerous (read more about it here) — and it is against the law. But breast milk is the first and best option even during calamities .

    According to the National Nutrition Council, formula milk requires clean water and sterilized bottles and utensils, which can be in scarce supply during disasters.

    “Human breast milk is best for babies, even more so during this time of calamity,” wrote Dr. Myki Manalo, a general surgery resident physical at Capitol Medical Center in Quezon Cityon Facebook on November 14, 2020. “So many babies need help!”

    Where to donate breast milk

    Dr. Manalo, who’s a breastfeeding mother and advocate, shared a list of contact numbers of hospitals affiliated with the Human Milk Bank (HMB) in the Philippines. It was just a few days after Typhoon Rolly and Ulysses wreaked havoc in many parts of Metro Manila, the Bicol Region, and up north in Taguegarao and Isabela.

    Calamity or not, you may donate or request for breast milk through human milk banks in the hospitals below. You may also read here how you can help instead of donating formula milk.
