My story

[p]This year I will be taking part in 2 half marathons in 3 weeks, the Hackney Half Marathon and the Royal Parks Half Marathon in aid of Women and Children First! [/p][p]The charity help women and children survive and thrive in the world’s poorest communities. They empower them by setting up health groups, bringing people together to find the solutions to their health problems.[/p][p][br][/p][p]They help women like Chaltu. Her baby boy died after a difficult home birth, with no medical support on hand. Her women’s health group supported her through her next pregnancy.[/p][p] [/p][p]She started to know about the complications that arise during and following pregnancy. She attended her antenatal care visits. She gave birth safely to a baby boy at the health centre, supported by a midwife who gave her postnatal care too.[/p][p] [/p][p]Chaltu is now protecting her health and the health of her family. It’s life-saving, life-changing work.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Women and Children First has reduced maternal mortality by 49% and neonatal mortality by 33%, saving almost 6,500 lives to date – and counting, in countries including Ethiopia, Malawi and Uganda.[/p][p]By sponsoring me to help me reach my target of £1,000 you will be helping to save lives of mothers and babies around the world. £20 could pay for 4 women to attend a health group for a year.[/p][p]You can see more of their achievements in the Goro Woreda of Ethiopia here: [url=http://www.womenandchildrenfirst.org.uk/goro]www.womenandchildrenfirst.org.uk/goro[/url][/p][p]Video: Their support of women during coronavirus: [url=https://youtu.be/vI3HwQ9CevU]https://youtu.be/vI3HwQ9CevU[/url][/p][p]Video: Immaculate’s Story: [url=https://youtu.be/-BQfb4fke2s]https://youtu.be/-BQfb4fke2s[/url][/p][p]Thank you so much for you support, of both me, and all the mums and babies worldwide![/p]
