When a child gets cancer it has a huge impact on the entire family, not least the child's mother. This Mother's Day, 11th March 2018, we are celebrating mothers all over the world by launching our 'One Mother To Another' campaign. As part of this we will be selling beautifully handcrafted Ghanaian jewellery made by the mothers of children undergoing cancer treatment on our brand new World Child Cancer Shop.
100% of the proceeds is donated back to the mothers, enabling them to have a livelihood whilst they are away from home and staying with their child in hospital for months at a time. The jewellery making training project, which lasts 12 weeks, teaches mothers new skills that they can continue when they return home. Additionally, this training acts as a form of psycho-social support and creates a supportive environment during an incredibly hard time.
Last year £3323.01 was raised from jewellery sales and was donated back to the mothers in Ghana. This year we hope to raise even more, and you can help by helping to give a gift from one mother to another.
