The Big Give

From 30th November to 7th December 2021 our amazing supporters helped make TWICE the impact for women and girls living with fistula in Nigeria.

 

All gifts made on The Big Give website in that week will be doubled and help provide essential treatment for women living with this devastating condition, many of whom have faced years of isolation, stigma and pain.

This was an amazing chance to have your gift matched by helping women access treatment, recover and rebuild their lives after suffering with fistula. We are so grateful to everyone who gave their support.

Why your support is needed

  • Over 100,000 women and girls are living with fistula in Nigeria.
  • Fistula is a condition that occurs during prolonged labour, causing leaking urine and/or stool, pain, and leaving women prone to infection.
  • Fistula can be easily treated with surgery, but many women and girls suffer for years in isolation - and may be forced to leave their job because they can't afford to pay for treatment.

Where your support will now go

Donations will help fund a comprehensive healthcare programme to help end the suffering of women and girls living with fistula and prevent further occurrences of the condition.

It will provide surgeries, training for midwives and healthcare staff to reduce the chance of fistula in childbirth, and skills workshops for women to start earning a living and rebuilding their lives.

Thank you for doing something amazing.
