Founded in 2016 ‘Breast Milk Foundation’ is a non-profit organization which strives to improve health outcomes for preemies and ill infants, fostering better health for children ensuring a safe initiation for the little ones into their respective worlds.
For a mother who is unable to supply sufficient breast milk to meet her baby’s needs, donated human milk is the next best option for her baby. Thus, BMF strives to cater to such mothers in distress, who either fail to lactate or for any reason cannot feed their infants their own milk.
As a long-neglected issue in a nation which faces highest infant mortality rates, BMF intends to overcome this issue which engulfs preemies with life-threatening illnesses, serious infections and other complications and concerns by accepting, pasteurizing and dispensing donor human milk by physician prescription, primarily to premature and ill infants.
Breast milk is a perfectly balanced source of nutrition, containing active antibodies to ﬁght infection, proving to be the most beneﬁcial food for infants until six months of age.
Breast Milk Foundation envisions a future where all babies have the opportunity to receive mothers’ breast milk. It hopes to expand further being able to deliver pasteurised donor milk to all infants in need, contributing to the health and well-being of babies and donating mothers as well.
We aim to improve health of preemies and ill infants through donated Mother’s Milk. This will consecutively control the Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) throughout the Nation and help to eradicate malnourishment among children in India.
We further hope to increase awareness among the populace regarding the need of babies being fed ‘breast milk’ for the first six months, while educating about milk banks and their vital necessity in India at the moment.
