World Breastfeeding Week – level 2

07-08-2015 07:00

Over 300 women participated in a mass breastfeeding event in Manilla, Philippines. The event is part of World Breastfeeding Week.

The event and the week promote breastfeeding, offer support, guidance and information to mothers.

In some societies of the world, women do not feel comfortable with breastfeeding in public. The campaign, which people hold on the first week of August each year, also tries to help these women.

Difficult words: participate (to help do something), promote (to support, to help), guidance (to give help and advice).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
