Scores of expectant mothers, who attend the Type V Health Centre in Montego Bay, will receive a weekly supply of fresh cow’s milk from Island Dairies Limited.
They are the beneficiaries of a programme aimed at enhancing the health of pregnant women and that of their unborn babies.
It is being undertaken by the Jamaica Dairy Development Board (JDDB), an agency of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, in collaboration with milk producers.
Under the project, expectant mothers from select antenatal clinics will receive three litres of milk per week for three months contributed by Seprod Group/Serge Island Dairies, Jamaica Beverages, Edwards Dairy, and Island Dairies Limited.
Similar donations will be made at the Cornwall Regional Hospital, and Cambridge Health Centre in St. James.
