Ang isang flight stewardess ng Philippine Airlines ay nag post sa Facebook ng isang hindi makakalimutang istorya dahil ang isa sa mga pasahero ng nasabing airline ay naubusan ng formula milk kaya naman hindi mapakain o mapadede ang gutom na sanggol.
Kahit hindi kasama sa trabaho ng pagiging flight attendant , nagkusang loob ang Filipina crew na magbigay ng sarili niyang gatas sa gutom na sanggol nang marinig ang iyak nito.
Ito ang pinost ng flight Attendant na si Patrisha Organo:
“I BREASTFED A STRANGER’S BABY INFLIGHT
Yesteday, I was scheduled for a check flight to be qualified as a Cabin Crew Evaluator. I thought that this flight’s gonna be so special as this is a big step on my flying career. Everything went smoothly until after take off, I heard an infant’s cry, a cry that will make you want to do anything to help. I approached the mother and asked if everything’s okay, I tried to tell her to feed her hungry child.
Teary-eyed, she told me that she ran out of formula milk. Passengers started looking and staring at the tiny, fragile crying infant. I felt a pinch in my heart. There’s no formula milk onboard. I thought to myself, there’s only one thing I could offer and that’s my own milk. And so I offered. Ms. Sheryl Villaflor, Line Administrator on my flight, immediately assisted the mother to the galley where I breastfed the baby. The baby started rooting, she was so hungry. I saw the relief on her mother’s eyes. I continued to feed the baby until she fell asleep . I escorted her back to her seat and just before I left, the mother sincerely thanked me. I was right, the flight’s gonna be special, so special not only because I got qualified as an Evaluator but I got to help. I breastfed a stranger’s baby inflight.
Thank you, Lord for the gift of mother’s milk.
