STAND UP FOR AFRICAN MOTHERS (SU4AM) CHARITY WALK .


PRESS RELEASE

Azania Bank partners with Amref to support the Walk for the ‘Stand Up for African Mothers’ initiative

 

Dar-es-salaam, June 29th 2019: Azania Bank (ABL) has today sponsored a walk for a fundraiser to support the ‘Stand Up for African Mothers (SU4AM)’ initiative, a campaign by Amref (The African Medical and Research Foundation), that aims to raise awareness on the plight of African mothers and to mobilize citizens worldwide to ensure that mothers get the basic medical care they need during pregnancy and childbirth.

Bearing the theme: Support Deployment of Nurse Midwives for Safe Delivery, the ‘SU4AM Charity Walk’, was held at the Green Grounds, Oysterbay in Dar es Salaam and officiated by the Vice-President of the United Republic of Tanzania, Mama Samia Suluhu Hassan.

Speaking at the event, ABL Managing Director, Charles Itembe underpinned the bank’s commitment to supporting the health sector, particularly citing maternal health as one of the core pillars of ABL’s corporate social responsibility policy.

“African women are at the centre of the social and economic development chain”, said Itembe, noting that without basic medical care, women in developing countries such as Tanzania, will experience high maternal mortality rate that would lead to retardation of social and economic development.

Itembe added that ABL recognized the need to support other stakeholders like Amref, with a view to contributing towards positive transformation of life in such areas as health, education and economic wellbeing.

ABL’s sponsorship included cash and kind donations to deploy a number of students in health centres.

According to Amref, over 200,000 African mothers die every year due to lack of simple medical care. Moreover, 40% of African women do not receive pre-natal care, with more than half of them having deliveries done at home. Conversely, 1.5 million African children are left motherless each year due to the high maternal mortality rate.

The Tanzania Demographic and Health Survey (TDHS-2012) on the other hand, recorded 432 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births and again 556 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2016-which means that nearly 30 Tanzanian mothers die daily from pregnancy-related complications.

By supporting Amref’s noble programme, Itembe said, ABL seeks to contribute to a considerable extent in reducing maternal mortality rate in Tanzania-and to buttress Amref’s rallying call: ‘Rise and take a stand for African Mothers’.
