My story

Sierra Leone has the highest rate of maternal mortality in the world, with 1,360 mothers dying per 100,000 live births (by comparison, the UK figure is 3.25 per 100,000). This shocking number of deaths is due in part to a shortage of hospitals, trained staff and ambulances. But lack of education also plays a part: and that’s where film can help. PFP & Future View Film Group (FVFG) in Sierra Leone have now finished filming ‘Di Kombra Di Krai'.

The film is a drama based on true-life stories and is an original idea from the group, which they have scripted and produced themselves with the support of PFP, including two volunteers from St Thomas’s Hospital in London. ‘Building hospitals and training more midwives is something we cannot do,’ says Tyson Conteh, FVFG’s Director. ’But there is a very important role which we think is the backbone to saving the lives of the mother and the baby which we think we can contribute to; that is, informing the people who lack knowledge about what to do from the first day of the pregnancy on to the last day. We believe a film like this will save a lot of lives for generations to come.’

We’re now looking to raise money to distribute this important film to as many people as possible.
