“ÑUÑUYACHIY: BREASTFEEDING WITH AFFECTION AND CARE”
In early 2009, the establishment of the first breast milk bank in Lima, Peru, began to take shape. This initiative involved the collaboration of researchers and healthcare professionals from the National Institute of Maternal Perinatal Health in Lima and the University of Valencia. This documentary showcases the individuals who made it possible and provides a firsthand account of the experiences that enabled the implementation of this top-notch healthcare project. The initiative has significantly contributed to enhancing maternal and perinatal health, ultimately improving the quality of life for Peruvian families and their infants
My vision, motivation, and focus for creating this documentary are to tell the story of those unknown heroes who dedicated their time and lives to establish the first breast milk bank in Peru. This initiative has contributed to reducing maternal and infant morbidity and mortality, improving the quality of life for families, and lowering hospital costs.
