Raising 200k for mothers2mothers with Annie Lennox
Today is World AIDS day, and we are celebrating knowing that through a great deal of hard work from Annie Lennox and some incredible people like Emma France, Kim Chappell, Victoria Wall and Carolina Manhusan Schwab, £200,000 was raised on Tuesday night to enable mothers2mothers to build and fund more than a dozen new sites for a year in Africa.
This alone will prevent tens of thousands of women from giving birth to HIV positive babies.
mothers2mothers reaches one in five of the world’s HIV positive women and by 2015 hopes to virtually eliminate mother to child transmission of HIV.
We are proud to have supported the launch of m2m’s European fundraising outreach and the opening of its London headquarters. Watch this space for more m2m.org news.
