Baby in need of breast milk donations after both parents die in crash
Baby Naoki's mom and dad perished in a 5-vehicle car crash in Camarines Sur. Now he needs help from kind strangers to get the nourishment he needs.
It was intended to be a happy family reunion, but it sadly ended in tragedy for the Peña family. They were on their way home to Pili town in Camarines Sur when they figured in a 5-vehicle car crash.
The sole survivor of the fatal accident was a 9-month-old baby boy, named Naoki William, after he was flung from the car window.
After the accident that killed his family, baby Naoki was rushed to the nearby Mother Seton Hospital in Naga City. There, doctors operated on his fractured left leg.
His mom, Susanna, had been breastfeeding the little one. After her death, the baby’s aunt Richelle stepped in to nurse the baby. Soon after the baby’s story came to light, more people have been donating to the little one.
The uncle of the baby’s father, Jimmy, told the Inquirer that private individuals were donating diapers, milk bottles, as well as cash. Parenting community, the Parenting Emporium, also shared baby Naoki’s story with their over 66,000 followers.
We hope baby Naoki continues to get the love and care so deserves! Like him, there are other little ones who would benefit from your generosity.
