Meghan, Harry, and Archie are on a royal tour of Africa this week, their first as a new family. In between important meetings and inspirational speeches, Meghan made time to visit a charity supporting HIV-positive women, mothers2mothers (m2m).
Originally a program to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission, mothers2mothers trains and employs HIV positive women as community health workers. These “Mentor Mothers” become forces for good within their community, working in severely understaffed medical facilities and serving as positive role models for children. To date, mothers2mothers has reached over 11 million women and children, and in 2017 served 1 in 6 of the world’s HIV-positive pregnant women, according to their website.
For Meghan Markle, mothers2mothers was the latest stop on her busy schedule. See photos and what she did on the visit.
