Gloria

Gloria

Gloria, whose story you hear in Bill Nighy’s appeal, was supported during her pregnancy by a mentor mother, and her baby was born HIV negative. She was so inspired that she has gone on to be trained and work as a mentor mother herself.  It becomes a self-perpetuating cycle.

Aviwe also had a mentor mother, and her baby too was born HIV negative. Mothers2mothers now works in 8 African countries and is the sort of expert work on the ground that you will support by donating to Comic Relief Red Nose Day 2019.
