Working Together to End Fistula


There are women suffering with fistula right now with no help.

Too many women suffer a fistula after traumatic birth with no way to fix it. The tears into the bowels and urinary track mean they can suffer relentless, mortifying leakage - sometimes for the rest of their lives.

A gift from you means that women can receive the medical help they need.

Surgery is life-changing. It heals not only their body, but lifts the shame of leaking, releasing them from hiding at home and helping them get back on their feet.

Will you join us and help restore dignity and health to women living with obstetric fistula?

"More than 150,000 women are living in with obstetric fistula in Nigeria simply because they don’t have access to quality maternal healthcare services.

This debilitating condition leaves women isolated and alone, stigmatised by their communities, all because of a medical condition that can be treated.

It’s heartbreaking to know that some women have been living with the devastating impacts of obstetric fistula for years, even decades.

This is why the work of CBM and their partners in Nigeria is vital, and they need your support today to reach women living in some of the world’s poorest communities."

Meet Victoria David, a fistula nurse and Project Officer with our partner in Nigeria, and see the amazing work she does to help women and girls suffering with fistula.
