On May 5, Mike celebrated the world’s mothers at Mom-mentum, a Mother’s Day Tea organized by the Canadian Network for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health.
The tea showcased the initiatives and stories of Canadians working with families in developing communities around the world. While recognizing the verb “to mother”, the event highlighted the importance of improving the lives of mothers and children globally.
The Canadian Network for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, headed by Dr. Helen Scott (pictured with Mike), is a collaboration of over 80 organizations working to save lives of the most vulnerable women, newborns and children in over 1,000 communities globally. Comprised of non-governmental organizations, academics and health practitioners, the Canadian Network brings together knowledge and expertise to improve results and engage Canadians from across the country.
