20668624_10209661592004591_1897782752_nEvery year the first full week of August is celebrated as World Breastfeeding week. This year, the week was celebrated under the theme ‘Together we can make breastfeeding sustainable’, and the Ministry of Health in Belize in partnership with PAHO and WHO joined in the celebration from the 1st to the 7th of August in an effort of promoting exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life as it is a vital step to long term health. As part of the celebration, the Ministry of Health held a breast feeding picture competition where mothers from across the country were encouraged to submit pictures of them breastfeeding their babies.

 


Two moms from the Corozal District were awarded on August 4th for their winning pictures. Alma Rancharan from Corozal Town walked away with third place while Griceldy Choc also from Corozal took home first prize. Theodora Andrews from Belize City was awarded second place.
