Story

I organised an event for Black Breastfeeding Week 2019 for the 2nd time in the UK on 31 August 2019. My aim is to break the breastfeeding barriers for black families who suffer the highest rate of infant mortality, here in the UK.

UNICEF and WHO (World Health Organization) recommended for babies to be breastfed exclusively up untill 6 months and untill 2 years or beyond alongside other foods.

The money I raise will go towards antenatal breastfeeding education for parents, breastfeeding education for thoese who would like to train in supporting mothers with breastfeeding using accurate evidence-based information, subsidised breastfeeding support for mothers, breastfeeding events and workshops.
