"Pay the salary of a midwife in Sierra Leone
Sierra Leone has some of the highest rates of both maternal and infant mortality. Having a baby in Sierra Leone is more than 500 times more dangerous than having a child in Australia. Almost 3,000 women and 20,000 children die each year from preventable health-related issues. With the Aminata Maternal Foundation, for as little as $100AUD, you can pay the salary of a midwife to ensure women and children survive the pregnancy."

Thank you @womensagenda for your support.
Meet Sydney-based Aminata Conteh-Biger, a remarkable woman who is dramatically improving maternal health in what is considered the most dangerous country in the world to have a baby, Sierra Leone. Aminata’s story is one of the most courageous we’ve ever heard, which she’s just shared in her new memoir, Rising Heart.
Read more about Aminata and her foundation on our homepage.
Today is the first day of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.
Since 1991, the campaign that started at the inaugural Women's Global Leadership Institute invites the world to raise awareness and tackle violence against women.
With your support, the Aminata Foundation is taking action to ensure that more women in Sierra Leone can access a safe birth. At the Aberdeen Women Centre, skilled health practitioners provide mothers with antenatal and postnatal classes, family planning resources and psychological support to care for the women and girls victims of rape.
#WorldChildrensDay is celebrated to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare. Please keep the children we safely deliver and support through health checks and immunisations, in your thoughts.
Today marks the last day of the AMF Walking Challenge 2020!! What an incredible journey it has been.
We love supporting our local Aussie community where we can! twoface LABEL is an environmentally-friendly business which manufactures with the correct amount of yarn per garment to reduce the overall amount of waste. What’s not to love about the immense detail that goes into each and every garment?

The AMF Walk was an initiative of the nurses @parisfittler @rosie_kemp @stephdowsett @lilliecarolan. Last year they organised the fundraising walk to raise enough money to cover the cost of 10 cesarean operations at Aberdeen Women's Centre.
This year, we couldn't walk together, but the AMF family has grown stronger. The event had 187 fundraising teams who collectively raised over $55.000,00.
Thank you all for joining us in our mission to make birth safer for the most vulnerable women in Sierra Leone.
Remember, a little goes a long way! Ask your friends and family to help support you and share your personal fundraising link to spread the word & get you closer to your fundraising goal.
We are super excited to share another prize (one which is sure to match the beauty in the kindness of all supporting the #AMFWalkingChallenge2020). The lovely Petrina, a beauty and style expert of @studiopetrinamilas will be giving another one of our top notch fundraisers a ‘Beauty Essentials Make-up Class’ valued at $245!
