This year marks an incredible 25 years of Comic Relief, I was a mere ten years old the first time I affixed a red nose to my honker.
The incredible work they do still continues, and this year to start things off they have taken three bloggers to Ghana to have a closer look at how the money which has been raised over the last quarter century has been used to improve lives.
And they sent me a postcard so I will leave it to Penny to tell you the rest….
Mum and baby sitting in the (outdoor) waiting room for an appointment at the vaccination centre. Such a chilled out pair! Nurses in action at the Health Centre here in Ghana, putting mums and babies at ease as they give vaccinations. Diarrhoea accounts for 10% of deaths among Ghana’s under-fives. Rotavirus, which causes gastroenteritis, can lead to severe dehydration and accounts for 40% of these diarrhoea-related deaths.[i] Comic Relief has given GAVI a grant of $200,000 to provide rotavirus vaccine in Ghana to help prevent against this potentially fatal condition.
This is a digital postcard sent from TeamHonk (www.mammasaurus.co.uk; www.aresidence.co.uk; www.mummybarrow.com) during their travels with Comic Relief in Ghana celebrating #goodwork. For the past 25 years the money raised through Red Nose Day has been changing the lives of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa. Let’s Keep Up the Good Work.
