Over £1 Million Raised for Healthy Mums Healthy Kids
You ran, you climbed, you played hard, you cooked, you dined, you all came together by donating and participating. Thank you
Thanks to your support we can give mums the nutrition they need, so their children grow up strong and have healthier futures. All your donations will be matched by the UK Government, so your support will go twice as far.
Millions of mums and mums-to-be around the world struggle to give their children a healthy start to life. This is because sometimes they are still very young when they give birth and are going through a critical period of rapid growth, which puts increased demands on their bodies.
Young mothers often lack access to the support they need to provide the care and nutrition that they and their children require. This puts them at greater risk, as often they give birth to malnourished daughters, who grow up to be malnourished mothers themselves.
Our teams are helping to save more children from life-threatening malnutrition. We are supporting mums and mums-to-be by helping them stay healthy and give birth to healthy children. We are running programmes to help them learn how to provide the care and nutrition their children need.
The Healthy Mums Healthy Kids appeal ended on 2nd December 2017.
