Mural Painting at QMMC

Volunteers of Layag Pilipinas and Kythe spent a whole day of cleaning, scrubbing, priming and painting the walls of Quirino Memorial Medical Center’s breast feeding room.




The doctor wanted a room where mothers can stay and relax, a place where they would be encouraged and empowered to breast feed. So we turned a drab and very dull room into a princess-pink fairy paradise.

All of this is in preparation of Breastfeeding Awareness Month that is in August. (!.pdf)

Did you know that all too often in the weeks or months after delivery, there is a sharp decline in breastfeeding rates and practices? Read about the Alarming Facts about Breastfeeding in the Philippines:

Continued support to sustain breastfeeding should be observed and provided by trained health workers, lactation consultants, community leaders, or from friends who are also mothers, and/or from fathers/partners.

Special thanks to Ate Mitzell and Ate Carol of Kythe Inc. for helping us!

We also helped paint the children’s playroom and library!



It was a team effort of Layag Pilipinas, Artist Madhouse and Kythe Inc. 🙂
