Obstetric Fistula - Survivors and Stories

Friends and supporters:

Here are some amazing illustrations of the issue of obstetric fistula in Uganda. Obstetric fistula is a problem we are not very familiar with in industrialized countries. You have got to see this link!

Bringing fistula stories to life - fistula survivors on video in Uganda at one of the referral hospitals in Kamuli where we send women for surgery. We have sent 19 women for repair so far and hope to send 20 more by the end of the year.

Here is another link, pulled from a feature story in one of the major Ugandan newspapers, to read more on why this issue is so important.
