Thirty mothers from three evacuation centers of Iligan city receive milk for lactating infants to supplement their dietary needs.
These mothers-beneficiaries, who evacuated with children, are currently situated in barangays Tambacan, Sto. Rosario and in Kiwalan.
Milks were distributed following consultations with lactating mothers to determine the prescribed supplementary whole milk advised by their respective pediatricians.
Ecoweb Inc. still encouraged lactating mothers to breastfeed their infants to provide them natural vital nutrients and vitamins.
However, considering the insufficiency of healthy diet of mothers in evacuation centers, milk were provided to ensure that children are able to avail supplemental vitamins like calcium, vitamin D, protein, and needed dietary fats necessary for child’s normal growth.
The assistance was made possible through a personal donation of a mother working abroad who deeply empathize with infants at the evacuation centers.
