Support for ‘Horizons’ charity

Dame Anne is proud to support the ‘Horizons’ charity whose vision is “an Africa in which a mother does not die every minute.” After being contacted by a constituent, Dame Anne has backed the campaign which is hoping to launch officially in October of this year.

For more information please visit the Horizons website or ‘like’ the charity on Facebook.

Here is an extract from their website:

“A Mother Dies Every Minute (unnecessary and preventable deaths, the majority in sub-saharan Africa). Help us stop women dying during pregnancy and childbirth. Help us empower the women living on less than a dollar a day. Pregnancy and childbirth should be a happy event.. even for women living in sub-saharan Africa. By joining hands, we can make the impossible possible. Together, we can bring a sustainable change to the lives of women of sub-saharan Africa starting in The Gambia. We will provide innovative quality healthcare for pregnant women and infants living below the poverty line in an international standard hospital.”
