Heartwarming Update from Our Field Officer- Fatuma Ramadhan
This week, our dedicated team in Bungoma and Kakamega made a significant impact in the lives of Obstetric fistula survivors. Led by our inspiring Field Officer, Ms. Fatuma Ramadan, alongside our diligent intern Trevor Collins , they embarked on a weekly mission to visit survivors in their homes.
Their aim?
To ensure not just physical healing but also emotional support and empowerment. They connected survivors with our counseling services, introduced them to closer Fistula survivors support groups and evaluated their eligibility for our vocational skills training program- Women And Development Against Distress works to rebuild lives and futures, one skill at a time.
Here’s some uplifting personal triumphs:
Prisca Maranje, a survivor who underwent successful repair at Cherangany Nursing Hospital, is thriving!
She’s now weaving beautiful baskets, showcasing her resilience and determination by turning her challenges into a profitable venture in her local market.
•Sara Injesia found hope and healing after her surgery. After enduring 10 years of incontinence, she’s now living free from this burden, a testament to the power of timely intervention and support. Sara is now engaged in the farming and selling of vegetables.
Wilfred Mary Madara was identified this week through the door-to-door fistula sensitization efforts by the duo is now on the path to recovery. Thanks to our referral to a health facility under the Kenya Fistula Treatment Network, she’s scheduled for her repair soon.
