Something About Company

We are a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping women across Africa by making child birth safe. We support local communities, providing information to keep mothers and babies healthy, as well as excellent medical care and training to ensure safer deliveries. We also treat birth-induced injury such as obstetric fistula.

It is estimated that over 350,000 children are being born every day across the globe, often in dangerous and unsanitary conditions, with little to no access to medical care.

With just 20% of married women believed to be using some form of family planning, Africa has the highest birth rate of any region on Earth, and some of its most impoverished areas. UNICEF suggest that the risk of stillbirth or death due to birth complications can be reduced by about 20 percent with the presence of a skilled birth attendant. However only 50% of women in sub-Saharan and south and east Africa have such access.

As a result, hundreds of thousands of women and their children are dying unnecessarily every year. Of those who survive, millions will be left with devastating injuries which will never heal and may lead to them being permanently ostracised from their communities – all because they wanted a family.
