Palmer’s Blog: Lions Milk Bank

Lions Clubs International

I have heard of blood banks, and of course Lions eye banks, but milk banks? In Guatemala, I visited a Lions Maternal Milk Bank, which provides breast milk for babies. Breastfeeding mothers donate their extra milk to the bank. The milk is then processed and stored until needed by a premature baby whose mother cannot supply the milk on her own. The Lions have eight milk collection points in Guatemala.

What a wonderful facility, in which Lions help take care of families in the community and ensure that the little ones get the nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy. We serve community members from the moment they are born!

Here is a video about a similar Lions maternal milk bank in Uruguay:
