Story

What? March for Mothers is a UK wide walk, raising money for mothers in the world’s poorest community.

Why? 800 women die every day from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. News of a pregnancy should be a time of joy and celebration, but for women in poor countries it is often a time of fear. The risk of childbirth is usually because women find themselves a long way from the nearest health centre. 

By taking part in a March for Mothers in Greenwich Park you can join Health Poverty Action in raising awareness and money for the struggles poor mothers face and help to ensure women receive the essential healthcare they deserve to give birth safely! HPA’s aim is to improve access to health services, through mobile clinics and constructed birth waiting homes. Health Poverty Action hope to improve and train birth attendants in life saving emergency childbirth care including antenatal and postnatal care, whilst equipping facilities medical equipment and supplies. 

When? Sunday 29th March at 11.30am.

 Where? Please meet on the grass opposite Greenwich Park Blackheath entrance at 11.30am (paid parking is available in the park itself or free in the roads close by).The walk takes approximately 60 minutes and we ask people to join us by bringing cakes to share on our picnic blanket after. 

March for Mothers is an event for the whole family, please invite your brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers and grandparents along! We hope to celebrate completing the March by playing games and offering face painting for the kids!

 Please donate and join our March for Mothers. For every pound donated, 96p goes straight to Health Poverty Actions projects!
