What's the latest?
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 (Cry of a Mother). You can view the trailer below.

PFP Summer Quiz Night – We hosted a virtual summer quiz on Thursday 9th July via Zoom in aid of our Safe Motherhood Project in Sierra Leone. Thanks to everyone’s generous support we reached our appeal target which will go towards distributing the film around communities in Sierra Leone.

Buy a face mask – Sewing machines have been whirring overtime as a group of Ilminster volunteers get to work producing face masks — over 500 so far. These are now available to the public from the Silver Street Dairy and the Green House in Ilminster in return for a donation — 50% of which goes to PFP’s Covid-19 work in Africa.
