A mother's milk bank catering to needy infants free of cost has been set up in northwestern India as part of a drive to save the lives of vulnerable children, officials said Monday.
The bank, inaugurated in Rajasthan's Udaipur city, will provide "safe and pasteurised human milk" to children whose mothers are unable to feed them, the chief operations officer of the bank, R. K. Agarwal, told AFP.
It is believed to be the first such centre in north India, Agarwal said. Others operate in the south of the country.
