close About Me
- Providing the Bebo community with access to independent, expert advice from support organisations
- Me, Myself, and I
- The Bebo Be Well centre aims to provide the Bebo community with a central source of information, support and advice on issues relating to mental health, crime, social care and well-being.
Everyone's talking about TEEN VIOLENCE and discussing how to stay safe on our streets. At Bebo we're not about one-way lectures so tell us what you think, post comments and share your experiences on the issues here or visit one of the profiles shown in the ‘Street Crime Partners’ module below.
This is the place on Bebo where you can find organisations providing specialist advice and support on their areas of expertise. Bebo Be Well will grow to include partner organisations from across the globe.
Bebo is actively seeking to extend the number of organisations participating in the Be Well centre.
Organisations interested in joining Be Well should contact Rachel O'Connell, chief safety officer, by clicking the 'Contact' link located at the bottom of every page.
Carrying on from the hand-in of our giant, knitted petition, expectant mums have been gathering in five different countries for short flashmobs to raise awareness of the scandal that millions of women in poor countries and around the world aren't getting the healthcare they need for a safe and healthy pregnancy.
Along London's Southbank passers by were met with the unusual sight of 'pregnant' mums back-flipping their bumps.
The dancers in the video weren't really pregnant; they were professionals wearing pregnancy suits. But the idea was to say to people: "Dancing like this when you're pregnant is dangerous. But for mums in poor countries - who often give birth without access to midwives, hospitals, or medicines - pregnancy is an even bigger gamble."
Watch the video at www.bebo.com/oxfam If you like the video, why not tap your neighbour on the shoulder at work and show it to them? Or you could email it to your mum. Either way, by passing it on you'll be helping us raise awareness of the issue ahead of the UN Millennium Development Goals Summit, where world leaders will meet to discuss progress on tackling global poverty.
The Millennium Development Goal 5 pledged to reduce the number of women dying in pregnancy or childbirth by 75 per cent, but it is the Goal most off track. World leaders must ensure that the promises they made are put back on track.
Similar flashmobs also went on in Paris, Berlin, Utrecht and Canada, which you can see by browsing over to YouTube http://www.youtube.com/view_play_lis...
Thanks to breakdancers Rosa, Odilia and Stella, and Yami and Sunanda from Flowzaic, and thanks to Zan Barberton for filming.
