The Mother of All Road Trips

BBC One featured the lifesaving work of m2m’s Mentor Mothers in Kenya in its documentary on the Red Nose African Convoy.

The documentary aired in the lead up to Red Nose Day 2017, organised biennially by the British charity Comic Relief to raise funds for those in need in the U.K. and abroad. The documentary followed six celebrities as they swapped their home comforts for life on the road to take the British public on a journey to show how their donations on Red Nose Day would help change lives. 

Among the celebrities were British comedians Katy Brand and Russell Kane who peeled off from the convoy to visit m2m’s sites at Rachuonyo Clinic, just outside of Kisumu, Kenya, that receive funding from Comic Relief. There they met Beatrice, who runs the site, and several m2m clients, witnessing first hand how Beatrice and her team of Mentor Mothers provide life-saving education and support to women, children, and families each and every day. 

Both comedians recorded video diaries of this special day:
