SafeHands for Mothers

SafeHands for Mothers' vision is a world where no woman dies in pregnancy or childbirth. We work to achieve this vision through the production of high quality films and visuals.

Founded 2003

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to reduce maternal and infant mortality by harnessing the power of the visual, to advocate for policy change and increase investment in maternal and newborn health care. We achieve this through the production of films which are used by our partners at a community, national and international level.

    We make films to inform and educate communities, films to increase the skills of frontline health workers in some of the world’s most challenging environments, and films which inspire change by raising awareness of the barriers women face in accessing safe, affordable reproductive healthcare. Our films tackle the big issues of maternal health; obstetric fistula, female genital mutilation, child marriage and HIV/AIDS.

    We use and develop innovative solar powered video technology to ensure our films reach the most remote regions, taking our help directly to the communities who need it most.
