Sign Up to Save a Life!

Sign Up to Save a Life is our new campaign to keep more HIV-positive mothers and their babies healthy and raise awareness about our lifesaving work. It costs you nothing and we need your help! 

For each new free signup to our newsletter between March 31st and April 14th, a generous anonymous donor will give m2m $10, up to $10,000! Every $10 that we raise can help one mother protect her baby from HIV and stay healthy over the course of her pregnancy. What an incredible way to make a difference! 

This is what you can do: 

Ask your friends/family/co-workers...everyone...to sign-up for our newsletter. The best part is that it is free for you and free for them and every sign-up can help protect a baby from HIV

Sarah and Oliver: All You Need Is Love

At mothers2mothers (m2m), love is key to all that our Mentor Mothers do. Whether supporting other mothers living with HIV and ensuring their babies are born healthy, or giving of themselves in their communities, every day these mothers selflessly offer their love and support to other mothers and their families. But who supports them? How do they find the strength to deal with their own HIV status, challenges within their families, and still have the energy and tenderness to give? Often times, they have someone special in their lives who gives love and support to them. In honour of Valentine's Day, we asked all our Country Directors to send in their favourite love stories…and we share some special ones with you. Happy Valentine's Day!

"My name is Oliver and I am a resident of Muhoroni in Kisumu County (Kenya). I am married to Sarah, the love of my life, who is a Mentor Mother working for mothers2mothers. We are a discordant couple."

Breastfeeding Safely with HIV

For mothers the world over, breastfeeding a child can be both an incredibly bonding and challenging experience. But for a mother living with HIV, the decision whether or not to breastfeed her baby can be confusing and overwhelming. mothers2mothers teamed up with UNICEF to create a beautiful glimpse into this important issue.

A Chance Encounter Bears Fruit for m2m

You never know where a chance encounter will take you, or what can grow and develop from seeds planted in a five-minute conversation. When mothers2mothers sat down for tea with Sir John Hegarty, Founder of BBH, one of the largest advertising agencies in the world, we never could have imagined where that conversation would end up. Eight months later, what started as little more than a creative brainstorm in a teacup developed into a fruitful pro-bono relationship.
