Michael Brooks - 24 workouts in 24 hours started this fundraiser on 30/5/17 Via JustGiving
The African Maternity Health Link began in February 2012 with our first visit to Freetown, Sierra Leone. With a start up grant from the Department for International Development through the Tropical Health and Education Trust (THET) we made a scoping visit to Lumley Government Hospital to see if and how we could help. The need was obvious and vast. Through discussions with the Ministry of Health in Sierra Leone and senior managers at Worcestershire Acute NHS Trust an agreement was undertaken to provide training and support for the midwifery staff at Lumley. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed by both partners agreeing to cooperate and develop the Link to improve the maternity services being offered in the Lumley area. The link continued to develop until 2015 when unfortunately the closure of The Alexandria Hospital (WAHT) rendered the health link no longer viable. In order to carry on our work, in 2016 we registered as an independent charity, linking Sierra Leone and UK midwives. Our aim is to teach, update and support the midwives of Sierra Leone through workshops, data collection and clinical support. We work in partnership with the Cardiff based charity 'Life for African Mothers.'

Is there any cost to the challenger or to the cause?
No, GoRaise is completely free to use for challengers and causes. The only cost is to the retailer
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Will we end up paying more for goods and services?
No, you are not charged anything extra. You buy directly from supplier websites accessed via GoRaise so you pay the same as anyone else. In fact – our users are able to take advantage of many exclusive offers and promotions so you will often find a better deal with suppliers through GoRaise. If you have a preferred supplier not currently listed on GoRaise.co.uk, please let us know and we will help them sign up.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Which causes can we raise money for?
You can support any good cause, from small community groups, national charities or your own company foundations. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added very easily for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, company foundations, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
