mothers2mothers (m2m) knows that mothers living with HIV are the greatest resource available to ending paediatric AIDS and creating healthy families. Since 2001, we have trained, employed, and empowered HIV-positive mothers from local communities to educate and support other women on how to protect their babies from HIV infection and stay healthy. We are about to celebrate our 15th birthday and in that short time, we will have reached 1.5 million HIV-positive mothers in nine sub-Saharan countries. Support us today and you, too, can help bring health and hope to 1.5 million more!
Why donate to mothers2mothers?
- m2m’s programme works! A recent independent evaluation found that m2m reduces mother-to-child transmission rates, improves health outcomes for mothers and babies, and saves significant money in averted HIV treatment costs.
- Fifteen years ago, more than 1,500 babies were born with HIV each and every day. That number has dropped to 600. But that is still 600 too many, each one almost entirely preventable! m2m is helping bring that number to zero.
What can your donation do?
$25… can pay for more than 950 text messages encouraging new mothers to stay on treatment.
$50… can provide nutritious meals at two m2m support sessions, often the only healthy food an HIV-positive pregnant mother may receive that day.
$100… can employ a Community Mentor Mother in rural Malawi for more than one month to visit women at home who are too frightened or live too far from health centres to access medical care.
$500… can help reach 20 new, at-risk women who are in need of healthcare, education, and support.
$1,000… can employ a Mentor Mother for seven months, bringing lifesaving health education and support to hundreds of HIV-positive women and their babies.
An HIV-free generation starts with mothers. The time to act is now! Thank you!
