Join hands to create a breastfeeding-friendly environment

On 11 June 2020, our Corporate Communications Manager, Ms Dorothy SAM went on air at RTHK Radio 2 with Ms Jacy CHAN and Ms Kaeru CHAN, Chairperson and Committee Member of Hong Kong Breastfeeding Mothers’ Association (HKBFMA) respectively, to talk about the lingering stigma around breastfeeding in the city, ways to foster a breastfeeding-friendly culture, and the evolving legal protections for breastfeeding women in Hong Kong.

The episode was part of a partnership initiative between the EOC and RTHK Radio 2 called the “Equal Opportunities Diversity Project”, a year-long programme consisting of interviews and promotional segments designed to promulgate the value of inclusion and raise awareness of the challenges facing different marginalised communities.
