Thousands of women & girls are helped by us each year

With your help, we can do more

An estimated 2 million women and girls in Africa are suffering from obstetric fistula caused by prolonged, obstructed childbirth and lack of access to maternity care. Left incontinent, they are often condemned to a life of solitude and despair.

Our charity helps these women and girls by providing free surgeries to heal their fistulas and free maternity care to prevent fistulas and ensure safe childbirth.  We also train local healthcare workers.

Women’s health is fundamental to women’s rights and societal roles in Africa and effective medical care to remedy and prevent obstetric fistula is essential to achieving those rights and roles for women.

 

“At first, I didn’t see myself as a human being since people didn’t want to be around me. Now, I see healing and it’s like life has returned again”
