Uganda: an association strengthens families by donating breast milk
In Uganda, the Adipose Tissue Transit Association (ATTA), provides life-saving breast milk to vulnerable infants, transforming lives and providing essential support to families in need.

In an unprecedented altruistic gesture, the Adipose Tissue Transit Association (ATTA) in Uganda continues its mission to bring a glimmer of hope to vulnerable infants and their families.

Founded in 2021, this nonprofit organization stands out for its unwavering commitment to providing breast milk to infants who desperately need it, providing a ray of sunshine amid the clouds of uncertainty.

Caroline Ikendi's moving story perfectly illustrates the profoundly positive impact of ATTA on the lives of families. Following a heartbreaking emergency C-section to save the lives of her two premature infants, Caroline found herself faced with an insurmountable challenge: the vital need to provide breast milk to her fragile babies. Unable to produce her own milk, she turned to caring neighbors and sporadic donations, until she discovered the existence of the ATTA Breastmilk Community.

ATTA, a light of hope in dark times, transformed Caroline's despair into a sense of inexpressible relief. Through their dedicated efforts, Caroline was able to access safe, quality donated breast milk, ensuring the survival and well-being of her precious infants.

However, ATTA's journey is fraught with challenges, including a shortage of financial and logistical resources needed to meet growing demand. Despite this, the organization continues to fight for every infant in need, expanding its positive impact across the country.

Racheal Akugizibwe, administrator of ATTA , expresses the deep gratification that this work of humanity provides. It highlights the vital importance of breast milk for premature and sick infants, and ATTA's unwavering commitment to providing this essential element of survival.

It's a sentiment shared by Lelah Wamala who donates her breast milk. She got involved thanks to a grieving friend.

"There is a mother who contacted me through a friend of mine, she had triplets unfortunately one died and through this depression, crying and everything, her body stopped producing milk, so when she stopped getting milk and yet these little ones needed it too, there were two of them, they contacted me they were like we know you give milk but can you please us help, so I helped them, I even referred them to ATTA and now the babies are fine and she always sends me a Mother's Day cake on Mother's Day so she thanks me every day." , said Wamala.

With every drop of breast milk donated, ATTA brings a flash of hope and healing, transforming the lives of infants and their families for the better. In a country where breastfeeding support still faces sociocultural challenges, ATTA continues to break stereotypes and advocate for the health and well-being of infants.
