Call the Midwife is a charitable organisation that supports Maasai people in a group of rural villages in Tanzania. Our mission is to work in partnership with the villagers to enable everyone within the community to live with dignity, healthcare provision and self-sufficient, sustainable methods of income.

Meet the team

The Call the Midwife team is based in the UK and Tanzania.
Though thousands of miles apart, they are united by a desire to improve the quality of life for the Maasai people in Tanzania

Liz Moore is the founder of Call the Midwife, and the organisation's representative in the UK.  Having trained as a nurse and midwife in Edinburgh, Liz went on to qualify to teach nursing and life sciences, complete a degree in primary care and worked in general practice for nearly twenty years in the UK. Liz started supporting clinical work in East Africa in 1993 and has worked with local and refugee populations in Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania. To support this work, she taught herself Swahili and gained a certificate in Tropical Nursing from the the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. Liz is now a life coach and lives in Devon with her husband David and has two grown up children who live in Gloucestershire.

Rebecca and Timothy

Rebecca and Timothy live in the Maasai village where Call the Midwife focuses its work.

Timothy established the first village church under the shade of a tree. The congregation has grown under his leadership and the church now meets in a lovely multi-purpose building.

Rebecca wanted to continue her education after passing her year four exams (quite an achievement in the Tanzania school system) but her father could not afford it. Instead, he recommended that she marry Timothy, who had loved her for years.

At their wedding breakfast, Timothy promised that he would allow Rebecca to continue her studies if they ever had the opportunity.  Call the Midwife's sponsorship made it possible for Rebecca to train as a nurse and midwife. She has never been busier, or happier. 

They have three boys, though their journey through parenthood has not been without deep sadness. Rebecca was still working in her 39th week of pregnancy when she gave birth to stillborn twins. Her life would also have been lost that day if it were not for her midwifery training and her husband's quick thinking to borrow money for a life-giving blood donation from her friends in the village

PASTOR JACOB and his wife Judith live in a derelict building that was once a school. They have two children who are small for their age because of a poor diet.

They love and serve the church tirelessly. They do not receive and income as the congregation is very poor.
