Hundreds Of Mothers In Philippines Take To The Streets To Breastfeed Their Children Over Awareness

Filipino mothers have bared their chests in an event to promote and raise awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding.

Around 500 breastfeeding mothers attended the 'Hakab Na! 2016' event in Pasig City, east of Manila, today. The fourth annual event of 'Hakab', which means to cling tightly to the body, was organised by non-government organisation Breastfeeding Pinays.

Mothers proudly breastfed their children while holding up signs such as 'breast is best', 'new generation mums love breastfeeding' and 'breastfeeding is nation building'.

One mother said she was proud to have breastfed her daughter for more than three years.
