each day, the equivalent of three Boeing 747s full of mothers die in childbirth
a woman’s risk of dying from treatable or preventable complications of pregnancy and childbirth over the course of her lifetime is 1 in 6.
The main activities of the charity revolve around visits to Sub-Saharan Africa countries to provide training for anesthetic medical staff at the front-line of maternal care.
In order to help the charity, we were asked as textile students to create squares of decorated fabrics in order to create a blanket and sell, to give the proceeds to charity. I started off looking on google at African patterns, and this was the result I got. I loved the idea of incorporating warm colour’s, with animals and geometric shapes.
