DONATE to our Mother's Day Appeal

The Aminata Maternal Foundation was established to improve maternal mortality outcomes for women and babies in Sierra Leone. The Foundation takes a multi-faceted approach to empowering women through providing resources and education around pregnancy and pre and post-natal care. In 2016 we begin operations by partnering with the Aberdeen Women’s Centre with a focus on fistula operations and supporting pregnant teenagers resulting from the Ebola crisis. Aminata’s ambition is to see women in her country of birth experience the joy of birth and life to the fullest.
