The Mercy Health Foundation, with the generosity of philanthropic donors, supported the establishment of the Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank.
The Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank is now raising funds for the expansion of the Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank to all neonatal intensive care nurseries in Victoria. You can support the Breastmilk Bank today by making a financial donation.
Funding supports the Breastmilk Bank in many different ways, including:
• supporting our donors by providing them with the necessary equipment to donate breastmilk, such as breastmilk pumps, expressing kits and bottles
• equipment, such as pasteurisers and freezers, and their ongoing maintenance
• expanding the Breastmilk Bank with the establishment of satellite sites at three additional Melbourne hospitals so that more premature babies across Victoria can have access to Pasteurised Donor Milk.
Learn more about how the Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank provides vulnerable infants with access to safe, screened and Pasteurised Donor Milk (PDM).
We acknowledge the generosity of Barr Family Foundation which has enabled the Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank expansion, including the redevelopment of Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank’s website.
