May 23rd - International Day to End Obstetric Fistula

Today we are celebrating International Day to End Obstetric Fistula

Obstetric Fistula is a life changing, tragic and devastating condition which is affecting an estimated 2 million women and girls across Africa.
In the last decade, Freedom from Fistula has made incredible progress - helping more than 120,000 women and children across projects in Sierra Leone, Malawi, Kenya and Madagascar.
However, we are committed to doing more. We ask you to support us today as we pledge to continue our fight, to take action, to raise awareness and to transform the lives of women and girls in Africa.

YOUR DONATIONS TRANSFORM LIVES!

Because of you

Because of you
I lost my dignity
I lost my child
I separated from my husband
I can't do anything
Because of you

Because of you
I delay in my decision making
I delay in reaching health facilities
I delay to receive care at health facilities

Because of you
I tell girls to avoid early pregnancy
I send my girl child to school
I empower women
All because of you
Thank you Fistula
