Give to Medical Aid Films’ BBC Radio 4 Appeal

Donate to life-saving film and transform lives using media.

Badra is a midwife from a village in Somaliland, a country in East Africa where the lifetime risk of maternal death is 1 out of every 22 women.

Empowering health workers and communities with knowledge and skills is vital to women’s and children’s health.

Our films formed a core part of Badra’s training.  Now a fully qualified midwife, Badra delivers 100’s of healthy babies each year.

Please help us provide more health training with film and support our work with a donation.

What could we do with your support?

With £43 we could deliver training by film to a midwife in Somaliland

With £120 we could pay for a projector screen used to show films to whole communities

With £500 we could subtitle a film, translating into another language, hugely increasing the number of people able to access that content

With £1,200 we could produce one minute of animation, a great visual way to communicate complex health information and improve understanding
