Vongayi Mufara - Amma Birth Companions

About Vongayi Mufara - Amma Birth Companions

We have nominated Amma's Vice-Chair, Vongayi Mufara, as Trustee of the Year. Vongayi originally came to Amma Birth Companions in 2020 as a client. We supported her through a difficult pregnancy that sadly resulted in the loss of one of her newborn twin sons. In 2021, she joined our Board as a service user representative and in 2022, was appointed Vice Chair. As someone seeking asylum, Vongayi is not permitted to work— but she has leveraged her background in finance, fundraising, and campaigning to become a valued volunteer with several charitable organisations, including Amma.
