Lactating Mother Stores Her Excess Milk For Babies Abandoned By Their Mothers

One lady has touched many hearts by her act of kindness. The generous Phyllis Mwathi is a mother of one who devised a way of preserving her own milk for her baby. Phyllis says she did not intend to buy processed milk for the baby. As time went by, she realized that she was producing it in excess and thought of helping other babies abandoned by their mothers.

The mother milks it and then preserves it in a fridge. It is this routine that made her store more milk than her baby wanted. She then found out a way of sharing the milk with other babies that were in dire need of it. To her, it was a kind show and an act of sharing.

Phyllis says that on a good day, she can produce up to 400 milliliters of milk and on a bad day, 200 milliliters. On a daily basis, she takes the excess milk to one children's home in Nairobi. The center has a number of abandoned children who are way too young and need the milk.

The feeling that comes with helping them gives her a strong sense of satisfaction. She thanks God for that gift which she is using to help the babies.
