With the title ’Breastmilk – The source of Love’, the exhibition is a result of projects carried out by the Vietnam Women’s Union in order to support and promote breastfeeding.
“Through the photos, we want to send a message that a mother’s milk is a valuable gift given by nature and provides precious nutrition for babies,” said Tran Thi Huong, Vice Chairwoman of the union.
The exhibition is a story about the traditions of breastfeeding over many generations of Vietnamese women. Its message is a powerful affirmation that “Breast milk is a gift and a precious source of nutrition for children. Breastfeeding is the right of the child. "
The Women’s Union has organised a range of activities such as breastfeeding training courses at industrial zones and remote areas to equip women with breastfeeding knowledge and how to do the milking at work.
