Innominate is very happy to announce that we are supporting a group who are supporting Afghan Mothers by the collection of old and unwanted mobile phone.
Afghanistan is one of the worst places in the world for a women to give birth or for a child to be born, because of a shortage of midwives. Because of a lack of female education, not enough midwives are trained - and male doctors are not allowed to attend births. This means that thousands of women and children die who might not otherwise if there were enough midwives.
To raise funds to help, they recycle the old unwanted and even broken mobile phones that so many of us have lying around.
To aid them in this Innominate will be hosting a collection point where you can donate you old and unwanted phones. There will be more details of where at the convention.
But in the meanwhile you can read more at www.afghanmotherandchildsupport.org
- and even fans who can't make it to Eastercon can help if they have a phone to donate as there is a link to contact them through their website.
