I first heard about The Fistula Foundation in 2010 at a conference where I was working as an interpreter. A representative of the Foundation showed a video and explained the causes and the truly devastating effects that obstetric fistulas have on women’s (often young girls) lives – condemning them to an existence as outcasts of society, away from their families and friends. And yet these fistulas can be cured by a fairly simple operation, restoring to the woman the possibility of leading a normal life – giving them their life back. A lot could and needs to be done to avoid such fistulas in the first place, but given the prevalence of this terrible condition in many parts of the world, the Fistula Foundation is a lifeline for tens of thousands of women. I have been a passionate supporter of The Fistula Foundation ever since that conference back in 2010 and would like to invite anyone who reads these lines to go to the Foundation’s excellent website to find out more.
