We have been informed by our Senior Advisory Group, linked to in-country women’s groups, that people/charities are now being discouraged from sending handmade clothes, new and second hand (we send good quality second hand babygro’s, all of which have been checked over), because they are undermining any possibility of women in the recipient countries learning skills and creating their own businesses.
We want to thank you for your time and generosity in making and donating baby clothes to us. If you wish to continue contributing to the cause, you could support us by doing some fundraising for midwifery training and raising awareness about maternal mortality in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Thank you again,
Life for African Mothers
Symbol of Hope
Life for African Mothers has adopted the African Forget-Me-Not as a symbol of hope for all the mothers and babies that we support.
The flowers are available as lapel pins and have been sold throughout Wales at Welsh Assembly Offices during our Charity of The Year fundraising. We are able to supply these pins in an attractive woven basket if you would wish to fund raise for the charity.
Purchase Angela’s Book
CEO Angela Gorman has written and published an inspiring book on the plight of women and expectant mothers in Sub Saharan Africa called Every Woman’s Right. The book is an incredible read, available as an eBook and paper copy. CLICK HERE to buy now.
