2020 At A Glance

We’re saving babies’ lives one drop of donor human milk at a time:

  • Provided over 7,220 gallons of milk to 155 hospitals and 145 in-home babies in TX and 21 other states
  • Received over 1.4 million ounces of milk from 1,898 unique milk donors
  • Donated $250,000 in charitable care to medically fragile babies whose insurance didn’t cover our costs
  • Taught more than 100 students and providers: nurses, doctors, and dieticians
  • Built a Memorial Garden to honor the 700 milk donors since 1999 whose babies died too soon
  • Initiated a community program to address health disparities in black families related to breastfeeding
  • Built a new web platform that is contemporary, courageous, and accessible

 

MMBA’s stats for 2020

Want to help us save babies?  We need about 2,000 breastfeeding women to become milk donors in 2021 to meet the anticipated demand for human donor milk. Please share our 2020 At A Glance flyer with your community and help us spread the word about our mission.
