Nurture Project International is a US based, grassroots, nonprofit that provides relief to communities affected by disaster, crisis, or trauma. By engaging experienced and qualified volunteers we are able to respond quickly to emergencies and provide rapid assessments, training, and grassroots support to local communities.
Nurture Project International was first discussed during a conversation between public health professionals, disaster relief experts, breastfeeding supporters, midwives, and IBCLCs who were passionate about minority rights, disaster relief, safe infant feeding, and international public health. After an analysis of the current refugee crisis, it was quickly concluded that there was a great need for creating an informed group to mobilize qualified and trained volunteers who would deploy to emergency situations and support mother as they fed their babies. In addition, it was concluded that education, training, and information was needed not only amongst other NGOs, health professionals, and volunteers to ensure best infant feeding practices but also for refugee mothers so that they can create and maintain peer to peer infant feeding support projects within the refugee community.
Nurture Project International is focused on providing support to the refugee population in Europe and the Middle East. We are looking for volunteers experienced in infant feeding support such as IBCLCs, peer supporters, health visitors, nurses, breastfeeding counselors, midwives, IFE experts, and support personnel to volunteer in Greece.
