Tough Mudder is a challenge for particularly tough cookies and Iveta Parravani is certainly one inspirational and resilient Latvian. Iveta was diagnosed with severe post-natal depression & post-traumatic stress disorder after the birth of her first child. Having fought her illness she recently set up a charity Debessmanna in Latvia to help new mums & dads suffering from post-natal depression, encouraging them to seek help, to let them realise they are not alone. It started as a modest online forum and has grown to a leading organisation in Latvia in its field.
Iveta is fundraising by running Tough Mudder to give broader audience across Latvia access to post-natal depression seminars and support groups. To donate visit https://mydonate.bt.com/
PS. Guess we will spare our usual white Giving for Latvia fundraiser T-shirt this time.
