Magen David Adom runs the national Human Milk Bank, and this week, broke a record!
Magen David Adom broke a new record this week, with the Human Milk Bank supplied 30 liters of milk to Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) across Israel. This amount is equal to six weeks nursing supply, and so will provide nutrition to dozens of premature babies.
Dr. Sharon Bransburg Tzabari, MDA Human Milk Bank Manager:
“This record makes us very happy on the one hand, but on the other it hints at the fact that there is a serious shortage of, and high demand for milk units in the hospital NICUs. I call on nursing mothers who are able to do so to donate to Magen David Adom’s Human Milk Bank, and in that way assist the premature babies, prevent serious illness and save lives.”
