Put an End to Obstetric Fistula

Posted by Amy on Monday 10th September 2018

For 17 years,  Abrehet lived alone and ashamed because of a curable condition.

She was denied access to education and employment, shunted from family member to family member who wanted nothing to do with her, and left to raise her newborn daughter alone. 

We are so fortunate that there are no cases of obstetric fistula in Australia - but Abrehet in rural Ethiopia was not.

Your support will help fund critical fistula repair surgeries including post-operative care, plus train more Safe Motherhood Ambassadors to provide information on maternal health and prevent fistula occurring in the first place.

Your help can stop another woman having to suffer alone and ashamed as Abrehet did for 17 years.
