Supporting LLL Greece's work with refugees

LLLGB are raising £5000 for LLL Greece to support refugee mothers & babies on Greek islands like Kos & Lesvos. There is a humanitarian crisis unfolding as more and 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 on mainland Greece who can help mothers with information, support and resources to feed their babies safely. Please contribute what you can to help them in their work.

Example: £1200 will pay for the travel and basic living expenses of 4 Leaders to spend 3 days each in the refugee camps on Kos, and for resources they need to help mothers there.

All monies raised will be used solely by LLL Greece to pay for La Leche League International accredited Leaders (breastfeeding counsellors) to support refugee mothers and their children with breastfeeding. All monies raised in excess of the target will be used by La Leche League in Europe for the sole purpose of supporting refugee mothers with breastfeeding. All LLL Leaders are volunteers.
