Milk Matters

Milk Matters is a breastmilk bank in Cape Town devoted to saving the lives of premature babies in Neonatal Intensive Care Units by supplying them with screened, pasteurised, donor breastmilk when their own mothers are unable to do so.

In the high-tech world of the modern Neonatal ICU there is no substitute for breastmilk. All over the world it is recognised that only breastmilk offers premature babies the nutrition and protection essential for their survival.

When a vulnerable baby’s own mother is unable to supply breastmilk, Milk Matters can offer this life saving gift from another mother.
