Healthcare in action, creating access and changing lives.

Join us for a week long conversation starting with The Saibatu Mansaray Journey from Immigrant to The White House.

In today’s conversation with Saibatu and The Mansaray Foundation. The foundation is seeking to make a difference and save as many lives as humanly possible in Sierra Leone (Saibatu’s homeland). The foundation is working on improve maternal health through access to quality services, a skilled workforce, sustainable programs, and resources.


1 in 17 mothers in Sierra Leone has a lifetime risk of death associated with childbirth. And 94% of maternal deaths occur in developing countries such as Sierra Leone. MATERNAL MORTALITY IS NOT ONLY A WOMAN’S ISSUE OR AN AFRICAN ISSUE, IT IS A GLOBAL HEALTH ISSUE. NO WOMAN DESPITE GEOGRAPHY, ECONOMIC, OR LITERACY STATUS SHOULD DIE FROM CHILDBIRTH.


Saibatu Mansaray’s mission in this fight is to partner with passionate and informed partners to help solve this Maternal Mortality Crisis. The first step is awareness, to alert the global community that Sierra Leonean mothers are dying and together we can save them. The Mansaray Foundation is a grassroots non-profit organization seeking to make a difference and save as many lives as humanly possible in Sierra Leone. Saibatu hopes to spread this message and encourage others to join the fight.
