This years World Breastfeeding Week theme is sustainable development.

It is amazing how breastfeeding has such a huge and profound direct impact on so many things, from water preservation to reduction in poverty.

As breastfeeders, we have a duty to educate and encourage new mothers to breastfeed, not only for their health and that of their infants, but for the sustainability of our world.

Today EPSA is focusing on water preservation.

With water in serious short supply here in South Africa it is our DUTY to our planet and to our country to not only protect breastfeeding mothers, but to promote breastfeeding for a sustainable future and preserve the very little water we still have.
