The Aminata Maternal Foundation (AMF)

The Aminata Maternal Foundation (AMF) exists to end preventable maternal and infant deaths in Sierra Leone, one of the most dangerous countries in the world to have a baby. Following a difficult birth and her experience of high-quality healthcare in Australia, founder Aminata Conteh-Biger felt compelled to seek improvements for women in her country of birth, Sierra Leone, which she fled as a refugee. There Aminata witnessed women bleeding to death during childbirth in front of a doctor because they didn’t have enough money to pay. Now, she works to make birth safe in Sierra Leone.
