Launch of the webdoc: giving birth, the struggle of African midwives

July 07, 2016

As part of its work devoted to reducing maternal and neonatal mortality, the Sanofi Espoir Foundation is supporting AMREF to produce a web-documentary on the struggle of African midwives.

This web documentary follows the destinies of four women in Senegal on the theme of "Giving life." Florence, a midwife trained by AMREF, Khady, an expectant mom, Laura Flessel, an Olympic fencing champion and ambassador for the Stand Up for African Mothers campaign, and Oulimata, a student midwife, all share 24 hours of their daily lives to demonstrate the challenges of the fight against maternal and child mortality in Africa.

Follow Florence, Khady, Laura and Oulimata in their fight for life! #NAITRE
