Breastfeeding is one of the best investments to save infants lives, especially in improving health, social, and economic development.
As part of the activities of World Breastfeeding Week in August, the health education team at the Kurdish Red Crescent points in camps in northern and eastern Syria continues to provide guidance and awareness-raising tips to mothers during their visits to those points, including awareness about seasonal diseases such as diarrhea, and distributing brochures to them.
Breast milk is considered the ideal food for infants as it is safe, clean, and contains antibodies that help protect against many common childhood diseases.
Breast milk also provides all the energy and nutrients that the baby needs in the first few months of life, continuing to provide up to more than half of the child’s nutritional needs during the second half of the first year, and even a third during the second year of life.
