The country's first breast milk collection room opened this Friday

The first breast milk collection room in the country opens its doors this Friday, at the General Hospital of Luanda. The information was provided by Elisa Gaspar, coordinator of the Milk Bank, who explained that the milk collected “will be used for premature babies” and babies whose mothers for another reason are unable to breastfeed.


"We are going to open the first milk collection room in Angola", began by referring to Elisa Gaspar, who explained that this room will help women to get milk into glass bottles.

The next step involves processing the milk, which, according to the official, quoted by Rádio Nacional de Angola (RNA), will take place at Milk Bank.

"This milk goes to the Milk Bank. The Milk Bank has a car, it comes to get this milk in thermal boxes with ice conservators to the Milk Bank, where this milk will be processed, the control will be carried out and we will return to the Luanda General Hospital", he said.

The bank coordinator also made it known that the milk will be used for premature babies and babies whose mothers are unable to breastfeed.

"This milk will be used for premature babies, babies whose mothers cannot breastfeed for another reason, so this milk will be used for these children at the Luanda General Hospital", she said, quoted by RNA.

The official classified the project - the result of an initiative by the Milk Bank of the Lucrécia Paim Maternity Hospital, as part of the World Breastfeeding Week - as a "great gain" and said that they intend to open more rooms of this kind.

"For us it is a great gain, little by little we are taking the steps, we want to have other milk collection rooms to be able to satisfy the demand", she added, quoted by RNA.
