Three fabulous bloggers, Mummy Barrow, Mammasaurus and Alexander Residence set off for Ghana on a mission to spread the word about Red Nose Day and the excellent work that Comic Relief has achieved over the past 25 years. Yes! It’s the special 25th anniversary and whilst they were visiting the projects, back in the UK everyone who is anyone took part in a massive #TeamHonk Mission.
We tweeted, Facebooked, Instagrammed watched the TV reportage and spread the news far and wide. I also took part in a fun BritMums Twitter party too reliving our favourite Red Nose Day memories … there was a lot of talk about snogging!
Today my #TeamHonk postcard has arrived and you’re going to go ‘Awwwwww, isn’t that baby cute?’ and what a beautiful mummy too.
This is the vaccine project that receives funding from GAVI to provide a vaccination against diarrohea. I watched Jonathon Ross report from the Mother and Child centre yesterday morning on This Morning, he explained to the nation the info I found on GAVI website below
Diarrhoea is one of the leading child killers in the world – an estimated 751,000 children die from diarrhoeal diseases each year, accounting for 12% of under five deaths in GAVI-eligible countries. Rotavirus is the leading cause of severe childhood diarrhoea in both developed and developing countries and results in more than 450,000 deaths each year.
Vaccination against rotavirus will make a significant impact on global efforts to achieve Millennium Development Goal 4 (MDG 4) – reduce child deaths by two-thirds by 2015.
For the past 25 years the money raised through Red Nose Day has been changing the lives of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa. Let’s Keep Up the Good Work. Find out how at rednoseday.com
