This merits a special post. I am writing this post to support Kalusugan ng Mag-ina, Inc. and help them obtain funding from Grand Challenges Canada to establish a low cost lactation clinic in the Philippines. One of the criteria is vote-garnering using a 2-minute video.
The video voting period is from 12 September 2013 until 15 November 2013. We need your help! Here is the write-up of Dr. Lei Alfonso, project proponent:
We need your help to be heard Breastfeeding saves lives. While it is free, our mothers and babies need a supportive environment to receive its full benefit. Our proposed solution – A LACTATION CLINIC that will provide a low-cost, evidence-based, and community-based breastfeeding support for mothers. Increasing the rate of exclusive breastfeeding impacts newborn and infant survival.

I cannot overemphasize the need for trained counselors who are easily accessible by mothers. With this project, I hope that dream will become a reality. I have seen Dr. Lei in action and I know that she has the capacity and capability to make this happen.
Will you help? Please vote, share the link and spread the word!
