OFW mom in Dubai donates breast milk to babies who lost their moms to Covid-19


- Advertisment -

A UAE-based overseas Filipino worker (OFWs) has been helping several babies who lost their mothers to Covid-19 in the host country by providing them her breast milk. 

Chinie Ching Tagala, a first-time mother, told The Filipino Times, that she gave birth to her first kid on May 2 this year. 

She has decided to provide breast milk to other babies whose mothers died to the virus. 

“Napaka-importante ng bayanihan para sa panahon na ito. When I gave birth to my daughter, the mother’s affection immediately kicked in. I cannot imagine how heartbreaking it is for these kids who were never given a chance to hug or kiss their own moms. Ito lang ang alam kong wat to help,” she said. 

Tagala added that she has always dreamt of donating breast milk to other babies in need in her hometown in Lanao del Norte. 

“When I got pregnant, talagang striktong healthy living at eating ang ginagawa ko para sa support sa health ni baby at para sa supply ko sa milk. True enough, when I gave birth po sobrang dami kong supply. Sinamahan ko nang sipag at dedication sa pag-pump every four hours at pag-inom ng maraming maraming tubig,” the OFW mom further added. 

Tagala, as of this moment, has already donated 200 litres of breastmilk, helping over 15 newborns.
