Message from Marta Trejos for the 40th anniversary of IBFAN, 12 October 2019
- On this date, 12 October, IBFAN celebrates 40 years of intense struggle to protect the rights of mothers and their children, returning their right to breastfeed and to a healthy life.
- Thanks to each one of you for your brave contribution, for your responsible commitment and for dedicating your life to improving this world.
- Without you, we would not have achieved so many important successes nor would we be able to achieve what we are about to accomplish.
Our network is a living being that thrives on its members. We carry in us the laughter, efforts, battles, skills, lessons … of those who hold IBFAN in their hearts and in their daily lives.
- At every step we bear with us the pioneers, the tenacious and strong people who spent years weaving the network, whom life has torn from us without permission – like Gloria and Amura – and we work with the new enthusiastic generations that have joined us in the building of this special, wonderful and unique network.
We admire you, we love you, we hug you.
