Faye Ripley: 'Lend your Facebook Status to an African Mum'

African health development charity AMREF is urging people to lend their Facebook and Twitter status updates to one of six women from across parts of Africa this Mother’s Day, Sunday 3 April.

AMREF aims to reduce the 280,000 African mothers who die unnecessarily in pregnancy and childbirth every year because they lack basic medical care.

Cold Feet actress Faye Ripley, who’s backing the cause, says:  ‘As a mother myself, I valued the support I received throughout pregnancy. Many African women have no such luck.

‘This Mother’s Day, lend your Facebook and Twitter status to support AMREF in ensuring that no mother dies while giving life.’
