It was a very informative gathering where Beauty Brains and Breastfeeding founders Ms. Patricia Hizon and Ms. Iza Abeja briefed us about their organization, how they have reached the farthest places in the country to help lactating women in distress especially during Typhoon Yolanda, and their noble mission to spread awareness about the importance of breastfeeding in the country. In the event also were UNICEF Chief Nutrition Specialist Henry Mdebwe who gave a short speech about how this international organization sees the need for social awareness about breastfeeding in the country.
In line with BBB’s mission is a fundraising 3km and 5km fun run titled “Nurture Run : Awareness for Breastfeeding During Emergency And In The Workplace “. This will be held in on May 18 Venue Still To Be Announced.
We encourage everyone to join this event and help spread awareness on the importance of breastfeeding for every moms who have babies, no matter what their status of living is. As Mommy Bloggers Philippines are composed of moms, we share BBB’s compassion and vision to help specially those who live in the remote areas who aren’t educated how easier, safer and much healthier breastfeeding is than infant formula.
