Life for African Mothers

Room 4A/B Cardiff SU • Thu 04 April 2019 18:00-20:00

A talk forming part of our Women's Health- Global Health short course.

Angela Gorman is the founder of Life for African Mothers, a charity working to address the tragedy and injustice to women who die every year in pregnancy and childbirth. 303,000 women die every year from complications in child-birth which occur mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa. 99% of all these deaths are avoidable with the right medical care and resources.

Their vision is very simple; that no woman should die giving birth. They are taking action by providing medications and midwifery training.

Angela will be talking about the work of her charity and the unique challenges of childbirth faced by African Mothers.
