Supporting LLL Greece's work with refugees

LLLGB are raising £5000 for LLL Greece to support refugee mothers & babies. There is a humanitarian crisis unfolding as more & more refugees arrive, many of them mothers with young children.UNICEF states "artificial feeding with breast-milk substitutes in an emergency carries high risks of malnutrition, illness and death and is a last resort only when other safer options have first been fully explored and deemed unavailable."(2013).LLL has breastfeeding counsellors who can help mothers with information, support & resources to feed their babies safely. Please contribute what you can to help them in their work.All monies raised will be used solely by LLL Greece to pay for LLLI accredited Leaders (breastfeeding counsellors) to support refugee mothers and their children with breastfeeding.LLL Leaders are volunteers.

We raised almost £3000 for LLL Greece in 2015 which has enabled them to help hundreds of refugee mothers. LLL Greece have also engaged in crucial work supporting NGOs and other agencies with breastfeeding information and resources - they now desperately need more funds to continue.
All monies raised in excess of the target will be used by LLL in Europe for the sole purpose of supporting refugee mothers with breastfeeding.
