mothers2mothers Report (April - June 2014)

Without Fathers, There Wouldn't Be Mothers (or mothers2mothers!)

For all those who always ask us, "Where are the fathers?," this is your answer...and what an extraordinary story it is!

"I am uneducated. I only speak Sesotho and a little bit of English. But I have big dreams for my children." - Seipati Mariti, Lesotho

We hope after you meet Seipati and are moved by reading his story that you will honour all the special fathers in your life by making a donation so that, next year, more men across Africa will be able to celebrate Father's Day with healthy babies.

A Negative Father Lives Positively

"In our culture, pregnancy is thought to be a woman’s business and men stay away from it all. Usually all we do is ask, 'how is my child?' But I decided to be different." - Majara Mopeli, Lesotho

In addition to providing education and support to HIV-positive women and their partners, m2m is also there to help couples who test negative, stay negative. Meet Majara Mopeli, a mechanic from Lesotho whose story of fatherhood will inspire you and warm your heart.

Hlengiwe's U.S. Adventure

Last month, m2m spokeswoman and Mentor Mother Hlengiwe Lwandle left her home in rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and headed off on a whirlwind U.S. adventure. It was a trip full of many "firsts" for Hlengiwe - her first international flight, meeting with a CEO, NYC subway ride, Broadway musical, margarita, and the list goes on. During her journey, Hlengiwe posted daily about these firsts on our Mums the Word blog, including what it was like to give her first big speech at the Moms +SocialGood Summit. You can watch an interview she gave after that speech with J&J's Sharon D'Agostino, read her speech and see photos of her trip at the links below.

m2m Board Member Funds Groundbreaking Research

m2m is delighted to recognise Board Member Debbie Bickerstaff and the Bickerstaff Pediatric Family Center at Miller Children's Hospital in Long Beach, CA, for the groundbreaking research they have funded, resulting in the second infant born with HIV to be cleared of the virus. While doctors are not yet calling the baby cured, there is no evidence of disease present in the child's system and there is great hope that this will continue. The Bickerstaff Pediatric Family Center is also celebrating 18 years of zero perinatal HIV transmission. Congratulations Debbie! To read more about the research in the New York Times, click here.
