mothers2mothers Report (April-June 2013)

An m2m Success Story: Preparing for Post-election Violence in Kenya:
On March 4, 2013, droves of Kenyans cast their votes in one of the most anticipated general elections in the nation’s history.   It was the first time the country went to the polls since the hotly contested election five years ago that resulted in unprecedented levels of violence, the loss of over 1,200 lives, and difficulties getting the most basic services in the period that followed. mothers2mothers’ (m2m) country office in Kenya was concerned that its HIV-positive clients would not be able to access the critical medicine and support needed to keep them and their babies healthy. To make sure that didn’t happen, m2m set up contingency plans and was the only PMTCT (prevention of mother-to-child transmission) organisation to stay open in the two weeks following the election.

In Appreciation of Fathers


mothers2mothers (m2m) knows that without fathers, there wouldn’t be mothers!  In fact, fathers can do so much to help their partners stay healthy and keep their babies free of HIV.  Take Robert Kankati in Uganda, whose wife found out she was HIV positive while pregnant. Watch his story here.

m2m’s New Partnership with Influential Bloggers

What do bloggers who write about culture, travel, home decorating, parenting, work, healthy living, fashion, and beauty have in common with the HIV-positive women we work with in Africa?  They care deeply about promoting healthy motherhood and making sure that every child everywhere is born free of HIV.  This team of eleven accomplished bloggers is supporting our mothers in Africa with an exciting new monthly blog on our website, called m2m Mums the Word.
