Every day 8 mothers die unnecessarily during childbirth.

Sierra Leone is a dangerous place for mothers. It has one of the world’s highest maternal mortality rates, at an estimated 1,165 deaths per 100,000 live births.  According to the World Health Organisation, the high level of maternal deaths in the country is alarming. The WHO report estimates that up to that seven in ten maternal deaths currently go unreported. According to various reports, 99% of all these deaths are avoidable with the right medical care and resources.

“We are trying to stop women dying
in pregnancy and childbirth”

- Angela Gorman

The longterm aim of the project is building maternal healthcare training and capacity across Sierra Leone.

In 2020, we are aiming to provide cost-free 400000 tablets of Misoprostol, essential to treat postpartum bleeding in childbirth to healthcare facilities in the eight districts and midwifery training to 100 professionals.

We are providing a comprehensive in-service training programme for a minimum of 100 midwives in Siera Leone. This will help in creating a workforce with the capacity and capabilities to deal with the increasing demand in healthcare services of its population.
