The milk program is designed to provide safe nutrition for babies at risk of illness or malnutrition due to maternal health or social issues. Although breastfeeding is the best method of providing healthy nutrition to babies, sometimes it is not always the safest or available method due to Maternal illness such as HIV or the death of a mother. Babies stay on the program until 1 year of age.
The program began in 2004 in response to mothers needing formula due to health or social issues.
- Currently the program assists 25 babies. Medical care is also provided if needed by our centre doctor.
- The program is free for babies and mothers.
