London, Sep 17 (IANS) Supermodel Naomi Campbell, infamous for her outbursts and tantrums, is helping out the White Ribbon Alliance charity organisation that works towards reducing maternal mortality. The money earned from the White Ribbon Alliance show, in which Campbell will walk the ramp, will be given to the organisation.

The reports Naomi saying: “Death in childbirth is a huge problem, it’s an epidemic. People don’t realise because we’re very fortunate but these people don’t have the equipment to deliver a baby. We are not asking people to give hundreds of thousands of pounds. Here, we take caesarean sections for granted, but it’s 10 pounds to provide one to a woman in Africa.”
