Helping Fistula Patients to Heal & Reintegrate

This is Joy. Joy is a lovely 49 year old mother of seven children living in Iganga District.
Did you know that women who suffer from obstetric fistula are often times shunned by their communities? Not only was Joy shunned by her community, she was also abandoned by her husband due to her fistula.
In addition to providing women with life-changing fistula repair surgery, we also provide post-surgery rehabilitation which includes skills-based training. Thanks to UVP, Joy was able to spent several weeks recovering from her fistula repair whilst learning how to sew. Not only did she return home better equipped to support her family, she was also better able to reintegrate into her community. Learn more about our Fistula program here…
