Every 3 minutes a new mother in Africa dies.

This Mother’s Day, May 8, we’re asking Amref Health Africa supporters to stand in solidarity with African mothers with a special #SaveMothersDay campaign. Join with us by posting a photo with your mom on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #SaveMothersDay.

Your photo will join hundreds of others in an online gallery at – a call to action to ensure African mothers have access to basic, life-saving health care during pregnancy and delivery. It’s easy to show your support. Post a photo with your mom and use #SaveMothersDay. That’s all it takes.
