Flight attendant Patrisha Organo had been a flight attendant for 4 years for PAL Express. Her concern and care for her passenger’s safety, security, and comfort has brought her up the ranks in her career from a regular cabin crew to an assistant line administrator. Indeed, her dedication as a flight attendant has made her career fly higher.
Tuesday, November 6, started out as just another day for flight attendant Patrisha Organo, 24, on a Philippine Airlines flight. Except that everything changed when she heard a passenger’s baby on the flight, cry. She knew immediately what she had to do. In an act of absolute kindness, the flight attendant breastfed the hungry little one without a second thought.
Here is the story from F/A Patrisha herself:
I BREASTFED A STRANGER’S BABY IN-FLIGHT
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 on-board. 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 in-flight.
Thank you, Lord for the gift of mother’s milk.
