ICYMI: The City of Manila and The Rotary Club-Chinatown partners together in upgrading the Justice Jose Abad Santos General Hospital’s (JJASGH) Milk Bank Facility.

Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna (with Vice Mayor Yul Servo Nieto) accepts, on behalf of the City of Manila, The Rotary Club-Chinatown’s donation of Advanced Human Milk Pasteurizer 2022 Model with Touch Screen and a Blast Chiller for the JJASGH Milk Bank Facility.

These machines could pasteurize up to 12 liters of milk in 90 to 100 minutes that is ready for consumption once thawed. The Blast Chiller could reach up to -20 degrees Celcius in 20 minutes and could fit up to 200 bottles. It could process more volume of milk at once and the pasteurized milk will have a shelf life of six months to one year if it remains frozen.

With this partnership, the City of Manila will be able to cater more infants who are in need of breastmilk.
