Pat Mc Mahon is a voice for those that have no voice. His voice is unique because it comes from 13 years directly in the field dealing with malnutrition and its consequences. ‘Nutrition for All’ is the advocacy wing of Mothers First.
Its’ primary advocacy focus is on the lack of attention given to maternal malnutrition in global nutrition targets and the Sustainable Development Goals.
This picture shows the beginning of that advocacy journey in 2015. Silently and peacefully he walked alone around a small roundabout in front of the conference centre in Geneva for three days. He walked not in protest but in Solidarity with those women and children most directly affected by malnutrition and hunger in our world. The delegates response was truly humbling, umbrella, gloves, tea, coffee, food and even a place to stay were offered and gratefully accepted.
For those that are interested we would encourage you to read our two-page advocacy position paper here.
