Donation of safer baby bottles

Donation of safer baby bottles

CANSA Newcastle donated 36 milk bottles to Home Meah in exchange for the old bottles.  The initiative was motivated by concern that many of the bottles in use are BPA (containing the harmful chemical Bisphenol A) baby bottles donated to Home Meah by residents, unaware of the health risks.
