“Just knowing a solution to my long time struggles with uncontrollable urine leakage, the horrible smell associated with it, the shame and ridicules that accompany it, not only gives me strength but had my hope in humanity renewed”. Rodah remarked as she opened up to Women And Development Against Distress In Africa(WADADIA) field officer Fatuma Ramadan.
It has been a decade now since the 41 year-old and mother of seven suffered a prolonged obstructed labor that lead to the uncontrollable urine leakage.
Her story is rather simple and probably similar to many others who have or continue to struggle with the devastating child birth condition.
Luckily, her story has a better ending, earlier today, Rodah left for Cherangany nursing hospital, where she will receive care, support and later a life transforming surgery funded by the charity Fistula Foundation
