Mums across the UK have joined forces with Child.org to fund pregnancy support groups in Kenya through the ‘Team Mum’ appeal, which launched on 1 February.
As well as funding support groups, the ‘Team Mum’ appeal hopes to spread the message that all new mums, wherever they are, should receive the latest health advice and necessary peer support systems to keep their babies safe
“Team Mum is a hugely ambitious campaign for a small charity like Child.org, and to see the UK parenting community throw themselves behind this cause has been truly humbling,” says Thomas Muirhead, CEO of Child.org. “The pregnancy support groups we’re funding through Team Mum will provide a lifeline of support and vital health information for new mums.”
As a UK Aid Match appeal, every pound donated to the appeal will be doubled by the UK government.
