As you may know, the Stand Up for African Mothers campaign is aimed at training 15,000 African midwives by 2015 to reduce maternal mortality. At this time, we are proud to report that we have 4,909 midwives trained or currently in training! The break down is as follows: 90 in Mozambique, 232 in South Sudan, 412 in Tanzania, 73 in Uganda, 3,478 in Ethiopia and 624 in Kenya. This means that up to 2,454,500 women in sub-Saharan Africa can now and will be recieving the pre- and post-natal care they need! 

Women are dying needlessly in sub-Saharan Africa due to a lack of access to basic medical care. With the Stand Up for African Mothers campaign, AMREF is working tirelessly to stop these deaths, thanks to donors like you.
