MMPS WBW2009 Flyer-English (Color)

Dear all,

Every year the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) and UNICEF hold what’s called the World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) during the first week of August to promote breastfeeding the world over. MMPS uses this opportunity to reach out to families by holding the “One-Minute Simultaneous Breastfeeding” event where mothers breastfeed their babies for one minute together at the same time.

We would like to cordially invite all to join us at our event on 1st August 2009, at Dewan Kuliah A, USM Campus (opposite CIMB bank) from 9.30 a.m. – 1.30 p.m., we will have interactive talks on breastfeeding during emergencies as the theme this year is “Breastfeeding: A Vital Emergency Response. Are you Ready?” and games for families. The significant event will be “One-Minute Simultaneous Breastfeeding” throughout the ENTIRE  MALAYSIA. Our Guest of Honour for the day is Mr Youssouf Oomar from UNICEF.

Join us in making history. You can join us at our event venue or join the “One-Minute Simultaneous Breastfeeding” from the comfort of your home.
