Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank 10-year anniversary celebration

Ten years ago, the Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank was officially opened at Mercy Hospital for Women.

On Monday 22 February, at an anniversary celebration, we acknowledged the generosity of our milk donors, the Victorian Government, our fundraisers and incredibly generous benefactors who, through their support, have helped to feed some of Victoria’s most unwell babies over the past 10 years.

We cannot thank enough our breastmilk donors and their families, our generous financial donors and sponsorship donors, the Barr Family Foundation, which has helped us expand our service to satellite sites, and all staff who have contributed to our breastmilk bank.
