Let’s be honest… we don’t spend enough time appreciating the Wonder Women in our lives. We’re talking friends, sisters, mothers, godmothers, and grandmothers, all the women around you who inspire you with their strength and courage and fill your life with love and laughter. Send this card with pride, for Mother’s Day U.K. or another special occasion, knowing that by celebrating the women in your life, you are joining a global movement to help support mothers2mothers' (m2m) Mentor Mothers in sub-Saharan Africa.

MEET ONE OF OUR WONDER WOMEN
Meet Florence, a m2m Mentor Mother in Rachuonyo, Kenya
"I first heard about mothers2mothers in 2009 when I was pregnant with my first-born. I came to the health centre with my husband and both of us were tested. The results were positive. I couldn’t believe it. He supported me and I supported him, but unfortunately there was nothing more I could do for him. My husband died later that year. It was the most pain I’ve ever felt in my life. I had no hope of living. All I could think was that I would die the following day.
I eventually went for an antenatal check-up and met a Mentor Mother at mothers2mothers. I couldn’t believe what she was telling me, that I, as an HIV-positive woman, could give birth to an HIV-negative baby. Through the education and support that I got from the Mentor Mothers, I made it.
I began to accept my status, took my medication each and every day, and kept coming to the support groups. I now have two HIV-negative children, both girls. They are now 8 years old and 4 years old.
Now I am a Mentor Mother myself. As a widow and a single mother, being employed by mothers2mothers has helped me bring up my children. And because of the amazing Mentor Mothers I work alongside every day, I now have courage and hope to live.
It is vital that Mentor Mothers continue educating and supporting more mothers so that they also become like me: empowered, healthy, and independent."
