AMREF Takes on Maternal Mortality in Africa


Our current health beneficiary, AMREF (the African Medical and Research Foundation), is raising awareness about the need for better maternal health in Africa. Read this article in The Guardian to learn more about current medical conditions in Uganda and the need for qualified midwives. AMREF’s Stand Up campaign aims to train 30,000 midwives between now and 2015 and reduce maternal mortality by 25%.
