One of the best ways to understand why we do what we do at Life for African Mothers and what kind of projects your donations go to, is to see it in action.

We would like to share some of the saddest stories which give us our raison d’etre. Please learn from these videos…and have the tissues ready!

Dead mums don’t cry is how Life for African Mothers was born. CEO Angela Gorman watched the original Panorama documentary back in 2005. She was so affected by the fight of this incredible women in Chad; Dr Grace Kodindo it inspired her to start the charity. Angela has met Dr Kodindo in Chad and she is patron of the charity. This video is our true inspiration!
