Talking of gifts that give – a present that mums will love
It’s not that I’m trying to encourage you to shop your way out of recession, it’s just that the press release for this came in and I don’t want to wait to share it. So, looking ahead to Mother’s Day why not sponsor a safe birth in Ethopia for just £15?
Maternity Worldwide says that “On average this is all it costs to support a mum through a safe childbirth in Ethiopia. Your contribution will help Maternity Worldwide train local midwives and staff to provide this essential service; in Ethiopia approximately 40% of women have complications during pregnancy and 90% give birth without a trained attendant.” Your mum (or whoever you buy for) gets a gift certificate and you get to know you’ve done a Good Thing.
NB – She might like a bunch of daffs too btw…
