Milk for babies

One of the lesser-known cargoes Blood Bike volunteers carry is human breast milk.

“I am just writing to thank all the lovely volunteers that help with the milk bank collections and to tell you about the exciting changes. The new Intensive care unit has now opened increasing the number of babies to 50 at any one time. Therefore the unit has got a lot more hungry mouths to feed. Due to the amount of milk this is creating we are getting our 2nd pasteuriser installed doubling the amount we can process at any one time.
