There is no greater joy for a young woman than to have a healthy, happy baby – especially for an HIV-positive mother. The new child is a sign of life… a child of promise in a broken world.
However, there is no greater tragedy than a new mother unable to feed her child because her breast milk could pass on the virus that causes AIDS. The Give Milk to Mothers Project helps meet this critical need.
Your donation through the Give Milk to Mothers Project means a new mother struggling with her own declining health can safely feed her newborn child. Your donation helps purchase the most critically needed item – powdered infant formula – for babies of HIV-positive mothers right here in Puerto Vallarta.
The formula is prohibitively expensive for these families. With your donation, the project hopes to collect at least 500 cans of powdered formula during the campaign.
With your help, the SETAC Community Center will enable a young mother’s greatest joy to continue. Her child will grow to be healthy and happy… a child of promise.
“We think The Give Milk to Mothers Project is a great cause,” Ed Thomas, founder of the GLBT center, stated. “I think it definitely benefits our community by raising awareness. It’s important for people to understand the AIDS crisis continues and affects people right here in Puerto Vallarta. Our goal is to build a free community, safe, friendly, full of love and acceptance for anyone who comes through our doors.”
What a chance to make a difference! It’s exciting to get different businesses from a cross section of venues within the community to come together for the same goal. Each and every interested person in our community is asked to purchase a specific brand of powdered formula from the recommended list. Once purchased, the milk can be dropped off at any one of the participating businesses.
