Supermum to needy children
by Wani Muthiah

KUALA LUMPUR - When Norlina Alawi got pregnant 10 years ago for the sixth time, there was also another baby on her mind.

She planned to provide breast milk to a soon-to-be born child of a 23-year-old woman who was HIV positive.

Norlina had taken in the unwed woman after she was kicked out from her home in Kluang, Johor.

"I knew the baby would need to strengthen his immune system. And mother's milk is the best remedy," said Norlina, 40.

The boy, now 10, was born healthy. He still lives with Norlina and her husband Lt-Kol Roslan Zakaria.
