For each book purchased, the author will be donating a life-saving dose of Misoprostol to Life for African Mothers. Miso is a simple and effective treatment recommended by the WHO to prevent post-partum hemorrhaging, a leading cause of maternal deaths in the developing world.

LFAM distributes medications in low-resource regions with fragile health systems where mothers tragically die in childbirth—from completely preventable causes. One pill can save a mother’s life. Babies – and any older children in the family – are at very high risk if they lose their mothers, so Miso is a life-saver for them, as well. Thanks for doing your part to help the world’s mothers!


By providing medication to treat the complications of child birth, we have been able to support hospitals and health centres across Africa and see huge reductions in maternal mortality.
