Aisling O'Loughlin and mums-to-be

Mum was the word as TV3’s Aisling O Loughlin and mums-to-be launched our Christmas gifts. www.trocaire.org/global gift

 

The group of eleven pregnant women highlighted our Gift of Safe Motherhood (www.trocaire.org/globalgift/safe-motherhood) for women in southwest Somalia, where one in eleven women die during pregnancy and childbirth. Aisling, who is due in December, dressed in pink to stand up for women who do not live to see their newborn because they have no medical care. “For all its faults, I am so grateful to be pregnant in this country," said Aisling." I often think of the women with no comfy bed, no hot running water and no proper health facilities and I count my lucky stars.”
