The Milk Program provides milk, formula, cereal, and vitamins to undernourished children and elderly. The heart of the program is the consistent attention, quick interventions for illnesses and on-going education that brings lifestyle changes. Mothers are encouraged to continue breastfeeding and are instructed in ways to increase their breast milk supply. Our nurses also show the families how to make simple, nutritious foods for their older babies. Your donation helps us continue to see high-risk infants and children, who may have otherwise died, gain weight and begin to thrive. We serve over 100 families in the El Quiche department monthly. We do an assessment of family needs, provide health and nutrition classes, and offer health care to all who are ill. We also provide special bottles and breast pumps for families of infants with cleft lips and palates, thanks to donations from Evelyn's Baskets.
Your gift of $25 a month to ASELSI can supply milk for one child for one month.
You can also donate to this program through our ASELSI Gift Catalog.
