VAULT Festival is proud to partner with Child.org in hosting an exclusive stage at The Horse & Stables from 27 Feb – 17 Mar. This exciting new venue will feature a variety of theatre, comedy, music and poetry, directly supporting Child.org’s Team Mum campaign launching pregnancy support services in Meru, Kenya.

The Campaign

A percentage of ticket sales for this venue will be donated to Team Mum. You can also help support this vital appeal by donating to Team Mum when you book online or purchase tickets at the venue box office.

This appeal is supported by UK Aid Match which means if you give before 30 April, your donation will be doubled by the UK government. (Only your donations and not sales from tickets or purchases are eligible for UK Aid Match.)

Why donate?

In Kenya, one in 26 babies die before they reach their first birthday. New mums simply aren’t receiving the health information and support they need to keep their babies safe. Together, Team Mum will arm new mums with that information and support. Our first priority is to launch pregnancy support groups in rural Kenya.

These pregnancy support groups will provide practical health information to new mums. Each will be provided with some baby essentials – including a weighing bag to help monitor the health of their baby. They’ll learn about breastfeeding, safe sleeping, what to expect during the birth and when they take the baby home. They will learn the warning signs to look out for – so they will know when to seek medical assistance at every stage of pregnancy and early motherhood.

The groups also provide a support system for young new mums – a place to ask questions and discuss problems in a friendly environment. Any new mum, wherever they live, knows how important this support can be.

You can find out more at Child.org/teammum or by searching #teammum.
