Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let you all know about a new exhibition at the People's History Museum, created by local Oxfam volunteers. The exhibition aims to raise awareness about maternal health in the developing world. In order highlight this important issue local people from Manchester co-created the impressive MOMM 1400 blanket, created from over 1400 handmade pieces. We will be showcasing this, as well as charting the history of maternal health from Victorian times to the present day. There will be activities for children so they can take part.
The exhibition starts on the 19th of January until the 14th of February. You can find more information about the exhibition here:

Hope to see you there!
