LET’S MILK MARCH!
In the month of March our appeal will be focused on collecting boxes of long life milk and milk formula for children at the Hand to Hand preschool, children in the slums and children in hospital.
For some of our children there is not enough food at home and a box of plain milk is a nutritious source of food that can be stored and used when necessary. We are collecting boxes of long life plain milk or soy milk without added flavorings and sugar as these can cause dental problems and have poor nutritional value.
Breast feeding is by far the best source of food for babies but for some this is not possible. Some mothers do not have enough breast milk and without sufficient funds to buy formula the child is underfed or given up for placement in an orphanage. For the babies who are abandoned by their mothers in the Banglamung Hospital, Hand to Hand provides all of the milk formula that the child needs until they are transferred to the orphanage. Sometimes we are providing formula for 2-3 babies for several months at a time.
In the month of March we are aiming to collect 2000 boxes of long life milk as displayed in the pictures below and 100 boxes of infant formula. If you would like to donate any milk please either deliver to the Hand To Hand house or make a donation online and we will arrange purchase.
Thank you all for your wonderful support. The Hand To Hand Family
