It means the world to me!
Celebrated in Canada OCTOBER 1-7, 2003
Join the Canadian breastfeeding community in celebrating World Breastfeeding Week. This year's theme - Breastfeeding in a Globalized World for Peace and Justice - provides an opportunity to consider the challenges of globalization while identifying the resources that globalization provides to promote breastfeeding locally as a symbol of peace and justice.
