mothers2mothers Report (July - September 2014)

    

Victoria Beckham Joins m2m to 
Eliminate Paediatric AIDS          

mothers2mothers (m2m) was overwhelmed to find out that Victoria Beckham had chosen to sell more than 600 iconic pieces of her wardrobe to benefit m2m and our work in sub-Saharan Africa. The highly anticipated private online sale begins tomorrow on THE OUTNET.COM and has been generating media buzz for weeks. In order to participate, click here to register on THE OUTNET.COM by Wednesday, August 20th.

We had the pleasure of meeting Victoria in February when she visited our sites in Cape Town and spent time with some of the amazing Mentor Mothers we employ. “I was so touched by the people I met and how focused and empowered the Mentor Mothers were -- literally, I have never met such strong women in my entire life. The work they are doing is nothing short of absolutely remarkable,” she said.

A Mentor Mother Takes the Spotlight

m2m Mentor Mother and spokeswoman Irene Nkosi brought many people in the audience to tears at the recent Healthy Women & Children +SocialGood event in Johannesburg, sharing her story of how she overcame childhood abuse and an HIV diagnosis while pregnant, and is now a source of strength and inspiration to other mothers and her community. The two-hour, interactive event was live streamed around the world. Through social media engagement, the event reached an estimated 2.7 million globally.
