Last week, Stacey travelled to Kampala, Uganda’s capital, where the unmet need for family planning is huge but The Challenge Initiative, with help from Sport Relief cash, is stepping up to do something about it.
Mothers desperate to give their children the best start in life, shared their personal experiences with Stacey, talking about the pressures that come with having unplanned pregnancies in close succession in their teen years and how, now, the choice can be between food or school for their kids.
After hearing first-hand the reality of life without access to contraception, Stacey spent time with health workers dedicated to making a difference, seeing them in action delivering life-changing services to hundreds of women at a special pop-up community health event on the edge of a city slum.
Money raised this Sport Relief will help Comic Relief continue working with more projects like this.
