Meet the Media Team.
We’re the brains behind the face of Maa. We help create campaigns that bring awareness about the work Maa does, but also about maternal health. We work with the rest of the teams to help get the word out and raise money to change maternal health in resource-poor settings.
The Media Team aims to create a fantastic visual for Maa, and is made up of creative individuals from all walks of life. Maa’s ethos is supporting mothers; our team works together to portray this in every visual, video, post and picture we share with the world.

Head of Media

PhotographerNahida recently graduated in Adult Nursing at King’s College London and has joined as Maa’s Photographer. Currently in Bangladesh, there is a severe shortage of nursing staff, with an average of one nurse to three doctors. This is due to the ideology that nurses hold a low rank in social status in Bangladesh, a common misconception. Moreover, there is a lack of resources, education and funding in the healthcare areas. Additionally, nurses in Bangladesh are registered as nurse-midwife (RNM). Hence, there is an inadequacy of maternal aid; as they have insufficient experience and skills to provide care to women in their time of pregnancy, childbirth, and post-natal care. In time, Nahida hopes to change perceptions of nurses and midwives through her growing role in Maa.

He is a British Bangladeshi from Swansea, Wales and is reaching towards the completion of his Pharmacy degree at King’s College London. He has been involved in many charitable projects and joined Maa in February 2017.

In August 2017, he embarked on Journey Maa to physically pursue his aspiration in empowering and changing a mother’s life.
VideographerYusuf is the videographer for Maa. Using his passion for film making he produces videos for use on Maa’s website and other social media platforms. He is currently in his third year of a physics degree at King’s College London. Yusuf joined Maa because he saw it as a unique opportunity to help expand and grow a smaller charity, creating content that would define its image and presence online. He was drawn to Maa specifically due to its dedication towards helping disadvantaged mothers in impoverished areas of Bangladesh, who are often overlooked.
