Accepting Donated Breast Milk for Africa

Picture
International Breast Milk Project is the only international milk bank in the world. Moms like you have donated over 67,000 bottles of safe donor milk to help orphaned, sick and hungry infants in South Africa and around the world.
And we make it simple. From the online application, to picking up the milk right from your doorstep, we make donating easy so you have one less thing to worry about.

We have partnered with Prolacta Bioscience to collect, screen and prepare the donor milk for shipment. Your donation helps by:
  1. Providing milk to orphaned, sick and hungry infants in South Africa
  2. Helping critically ill infants in neonatal intensive care units across the U.S.
  3. Providing our program with sustainability and support
  4. Helping us give grants to build capacity of milk banks in developing countries

“Living in the Body" November 4-14, 2010

Picture
If you are in the Toronto area, you don't want to miss this amazing primal mothering art exhibit! Artist and mother, Amanda Greavette, creates life-size, large scale figure paintings of women, narrating stories of identity transformation and relationship shifts. Her subjects are often in the process of becoming mothers - pregnant, laboring, or fresh with a newborn. Greavette's decorative and richly painted backgrounds illustrate the beauty and intensity of this monumental life change and provide context for the experiences of the figures. In the paintings, the female body is both powerful and vulnerable, and the stories they tell are both real and fantastic.
