Families who have evacuated from Fort McMurray need help to feed their children safely. Some women feel worried that their breastmilk isn't enough after all the stress they have been through. Some women are facing new breastfeeding challenges and others are away from the care they had for existing breastfeeding problems. Some families are struggling to find the right infant formula. Some need help advocating for housing that lets them prepare infant formula safely during this emergency. The Alberta Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies Support group is raising funds to help cover costs. We are a team of volunteers working to support and protect this vulnerable protection.
Please help! Even a small donation can make a difference.
Funds collected in excess of our needs will be forwarded to Save the Children Canada Fort McMurray Fire Appeal. Save the Children is a member of the Emergency Nutrition Network's IFE Core Group.
