Win a copy of 'Rising Heart' by Aminata Conteh-Biger valued @ $34.99 each!

1999, Sierra Leone. Young Aminata Conteh-Biger is snatched from her father’s arms by soldiers of the civil war and held captive for months.

After she was released, the UNHCR put her on a plane to Australia to start afresh as a refugee in a land she knew nothing about.

It is here that she has proudly built a life, while never allowing her trauma to define her. Yet it was a near-death experience she suffered during the birth of her child that turned her attention to the women of Sierra Leone - where they are 200 times more likely to die while having a baby than in Australia.

So she set up the Aminata Maternal Foundation, then returned to the land of her birth to help.

This is her story.
