Marea Ryan

In response to the evidence that milk banking  improves health outcomes and saves  lives, Marea recognised the need for Australia to catch up with the rest of the world. Marea established a purpose-built milk bank facility in 2009 and with the extensive support from all sections of the community has seen donor mothers’ milk save lives and improve health outcomes for over a thousand babies.  In 2013 was registered as a “Health Promotion” Charity. Marea provides education, support and pasteurised donor mothers milk to babies. Marea received the Community Service award presented by Karen Andrews MP Minister for Science and Technology.
