Mil Madres Amamantando - Río 2019
One Thousand Mothers Breastfeeding together! Imagine the scene! This is what we want to do to draw attention to the importance of breastfeeding. We are part of a group that for decades has been fighting for more mothers to breastfeed their children longer in Brazil.
To enable the exchange of knowledge and experiences, strengthen the motivation of women to continue breastfeeding and mobilize society for the importance of this healthy and loving practice, we want to perform this public act 'One Thousand Mothers Breastfeeding'!
Like breastfeeding, this event is a collective effort: To bring together 1,000 breastfeeding women requires a great structure! This is a free event, with no conflict of interest.
We appreciate the cooperation in the Crowdfundig “A Thousand Mothers Breastfeeding - Rio 2019”, that got R$ 79,625.00 (113% of the target) and gathered 401 donors!!!!
Where: At the Gardens of the Modern Art Museum (MAM), Parque do Flamengo, Rio de Janeiro.
With this public act we want to set the tone for the activities of the most important scientific meetings on breastfeeding and healthy complementary feeding: The 15th National Meeting of Breastfeeding (XV ENAM), the 5th National Meeting of Healthy Complementary Feeding (V ENACS), the 3rd World Breastfeeding Conference (WBC) and the 1st World Complementary Feeding Conference (WCFC).
