24-year-old air hostess Patrisha Organo has received several soul lifting messages from social media users after she offered to breastfeed a stranger's crying baby girl during a flight. Passengers started looking and staring at the tiny, fragile crying infant.
So, she walked down the aisle to approach the mum and asked if she needed to feed the infant.
"More than inspired, I have a mother's heart that knows what the baby needs", she gushed.
In the early morning hours, Organo heard a sound coming from the cabin - it was the cry of a baby in distress.
"I tried to tell her to feed her hungry child", she wrote on Facebook about the experience. In fact, the Human Milk Banking Association of North America collects and pasteurizes breast milk for mothers who can't breastfeed their own babies.
"[My] Line Administrator on my flight, immediately assisted the mother to the galley where I breastfed the baby". Not only was she qualified on that flight for the role of cabin crew evaluator but she also "got to help".
"The baby started rooting, she was so hungry", Organo wrote.
