WHO WE ARE
Aminata Maternal Foundation is an Australian Not-for-Profit Organisation that empowers women in Sierra Leone, focusing on maternal health and the creation of sustainable communities.
The organisation was founded to improve the health and well-being of mothers and babies, boost health resources, and contribute to the decrease of unacceptable infant and maternal mortality rates.
No mother or child should die during childbirth due to poverty
HOW DO WE DO IT?
Aminata Maternal Foundation, in partnership with Aberdeen Women's Centre in Freetown Sierra Leone, is working closely together to reach women and children by improving their health and well-being. There are very few facilities in rural areas in Sierra Leone where women can safely give birth and receive thorough pre and postnatal care. The aim of our partnership is to expand the capacity of the Aberdeen Women’s Centre to provide these vital services.
This centre is the second busiest in Sierra Leone. They serve the most significant unmet needs of women and girls in Freetown. Its mission is to provide high quality, holistic care to vulnerable women and girls by providing maternity, fistula and child health care services – free of charge.
