Crowdfunding launched to fund new model of milk bank for the UK
A new model of milk bank for the UK is expected to be operational by the end of the year. The milk bank is a social enterprise (ie not for profit company) that has been established to provide assured and equitable access to donor milk for premature and sick infants in hospital neonatal units throughout London and the South East of England.
The new Hearts Milk Bank (HMB) will also develop a bio bank of breastmilk samples for research including breast cancer research and will develop an online and face to face training centre for the UK and beyond. The co-founders of the bank have just launched their crowd funding campaign to help raise funds for the equipment needed.
