Welcome to Ammalife!
Amma means mother in many countries of the developing world.
Ammalife is an evidence-informed charity which brings relevant ideas, clinical evidence, resources, projects and training to where they are needed most with the aim of reducing maternal death and disability in the developing world.
500,000 women die every year due to pregnancy, and 99% of these deaths occur in the developing world. For every woman that dies, it is estimated that 20 or more are injured or disabled. A heartbreaking, but often unseen, consequence of these maternal deaths is that over a million children are left motherless every year. Babies who survive the death of their mothers seldom survive past their first birthday.
Over 80% of maternal deaths are estimated to be preventable by effective and affordable actions, even in the most economically impoverished countries.

Ammalife is a non-profit making charity. It relies on the goodwill and support of those who care about maternal health. There are many ways to get involved with the exciting projects that we will be running – We extend our warm invitation for you to participate in any way you can.
