Autumn Appeal 2021

Every drop counts! Help us celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank.

In 2011, the Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank opened at the Mercy Hospital for Women. Since then, we have opened satellite sites at the Monash Children’s Hospital, the Royal Children’s Hospital and the Royal Women’s Hospital.

The Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank is Victoria’s only breastmilk bank providing sick and premature babies with safe, screened and pasteurised milk

Our next goal is to expand the Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank service across Victoria, and to buy much-needed equipment such as freezers and pasteurising machines.
