I’m honored to announce that I’m part of a group of 11 bloggers who have been named as the Mothers2Mothers Influencers.
The other 10 ladies are very accomplished bloggers and entrepreneurs, and I’m thrilled to be working with them for m2m.
We will not get paid for our involvement — we all just want to use our voice and influence to help Mothers2Mothers raise awareness about an important issue: pediatric HIV and m2m’s efforts to achieve an HIV-free generation.
Mothers2Mothers creates connections and understanding between the HIV-positive mothers they work with in sub-Saharan Africa and caring mothers around the world, and all 11 of us want to help make that happen.
I can’t imagine having to deal with an HIV diagnosis, and then the fear that I might also infect my unborn child. These women have so much to deal with, so when I was asked to get involved, how could I say no?
I have the advantage of a large blog and social media audience, and I’m always willing to use that for social good. And with the help of the other 10 bloggers, we are able to amplify the work m2m does so they can help as many moms and children as possible.
Mothers2Mothers is an organization in Cape Town, South Africa, that employs and trains mothers living with HIV to provide lifesaving information and support to newly diagnosed pregnant women and new mothers to help them seek the treatment they need to stay healthy and prevent transmitting the virus to their babies.
Every mother wants to have a healthy baby and be there for her children as they grow. Mothers2Mothers focuses on the power of mothers to heal, support, and give hope to other mothers while raising awareness of the pediatric AIDS epidemic and the heroic efforts of m2m’s Mentor Mothers to eliminate it.
Mentor Mothers have helped more than one million women and their babies find health and hope in nine countries in sub-Sahara Africa.
