Jenny Wright
Jenny Wright CEO
Jenny joined Milk Matters in 2005 in order to assist with running Milk Matters, a rapidly growing and developing organisation. Jenny’s desire to get involved in breastfeeding support was sparked by seeing far too many distressed mothers giving up breastfeeding because of a lack of adequate support and information. Working in the field of milk banking provides the unique opportunity to contribute towards as many babies as possible having access to breastmilk, ideally from their own mother or, if that is not possible, from a breastmilk bank.

Donor milk really saved my sons life.
He weighed 985g when he was born at 27 weeks.
Because of your organisation, most of all your donors, my son is healthy, his weight at the moment is 4.5kg – getting fatter by the day. May God bless you all and the work you do. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Edith, Mother of a baby who received donor breastmilk - Cape Town
I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation, thanks and gratitude to all the mothers who have donated breast milk.
You have restored hope and life, which otherwise may have been lost.
We see the miracle of life unfolding before our eyes as these babies grow and develop. This miracle is realised because of your milk.
