Video Footage: Annie Visits Mothers 2 Mothers
During a recent visit to South Africa Annie Lennox together with Comic Relief visited the Mothers 2 Mothers project in Khayelitsha.
Mothers 2 Mothers was founded by Dr. Mitchell Besser in 2001 and has developed from a single support group in Cape Town to a multinational NGO in just over four years. The project aims to to create an effective, sustainable model of care that provides education and support for pregnant women and new mothers living with HIV/AIDS. Their goals include:
- Prevent babies from contracting HIV through mother-to-child transmission
- Keep mothers and babies living with HIV/AIDS alive and healthy by increasing their access to health-sustaining medical care
- Empower mothers living with HIV/AIDS, enabling them to fight stigma in their communities and to live positive and productive lives
You can now view footage from the visit here.
