Sophia is an obstetrician in Newcastle and a longstanding supporter of Ammalife. She’s been planning Flight for Every Mother as her own way to bring practical help to where it’s needed and to raise awareness about the risks facing mothers in Sub Saharan Africa. She’s built links and partnerships during that planning and now she’s setting off in a small plane to work in rural clinics alongside local health workers. and she’s delivering essential supplies and running teaching sessions as well.
