Aminata and Sarafina

The Catalyst

The foundation came about from Aminata’s near-death experience while giving birth to her daughter Sarafina in 2012, who suffered from shoulder dystocia at the time. During her experience in Australia, Aminata had access to high-quality healthcare and this has compelled her to seek improvements for women in her country of birth, Sierra Leone. In Sierra Leone, Aminata witnesses women bleeding to death during childbirth in front of doctors because they didn’t have enough money to pay. Watch the ‘Daughter of Sierra Leone’ documentary below learn more.

This documentary is about the story of Aminata's time when she was captured by rebel soldiers during the civil war in Sierra Leone.
