The Haiti Breast Milk Project is where generous American nursing mothers are sending their freshly squeezed breast milk to the sick babies in Haiti. This donation of milky nourishment is from the charitable organizations such as the International Breast Milk Project and the Mother's Milk Bank of Ohio. It will provide relief for premature, ill and orphaned babies.

Breast milk has many great qualities as beverage for babies. It has valuable antibodies, is rich in nutrition and doesn't require water like baby formula would. As clean water is scant in the earthquake-ravaged nation, there are great benefits in donating breast milk.
