Salma Hayek Pinault visits mothers2mothers
CHIME FOR CHANGE Co-founder Salma Hayek Pinault recently visited mothers2mothers in South Africa and met some of the charity’s Mentor Mothers: the fearless, HIV-positive women who are working across eight African nations to stop mothers passing HIV onto their children, fight stigma, and ensure that all families thrive, not just survive.
Leading up to World AIDS Day, keep an eye out for exclusive photos and videos from Salma’s trip to mothers2mothers.

m2m employs and trains HIV-positive women to deliver health services, advice, and support to women and their families at health facilities and in local communities. From an initial focus on eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV, m2m has expanded into five related areas to deliver benefits for women and their families at all stages of life. As well as a continued focus on HIV-prevention and education, m2m’s services now also include early childhood development, paediatric care and support, and adolescent mentoring. In 2016 alone, m2m and its partners enrolled almost two million new clients into care across seven African countries. Results show that m2m has virtually eliminated mother-to-child transmission of HIV among its clients, and is making significant strides in expanding the scope and scale of its other services.
