A big thanks to TV3’s Aisling O’Loughlin and a lovely group of mums-to-be who helped us launch our Christmas gift range in style.
The group of eleven pregnant women highlighted our Gift of Safe Motherhood for women in southwest Somalia, where one in eleven women die during pregnancy and childbirth.
Aisling, who you may recognise from Xposé 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.”
The gift range truly captures the spirit of Christmas, so take a moment to browse through the gifts and get something amazing for that special person in your life.
Some of the gifts include fruit trees, chickens, goats and water.
