Bring Back Their Smile
Organized by: Willy Murithi
While working as a community health worker is fulfilling, it comes challenges that bring despair and hopelessness. In the field of reproductive health, there's a condition that's normally talked about in hush tones. It's called fistula, which is leaking of urine and stool for women though a hole between the birth canal. It's caused by obstructed labor during childbirth due to lack of skilled assistance during that very important stage of bringing another life to the world. Rural women rarely have even specialized care during their pregnancy period, because health facilities are far apart. They therefore seek the services of Traditional Birth Attendants who can only do much. In time, we have however convinced specialists in private practice to help correct this condition for hundreds of women and restore back their dignity. We need to purchase a few surgical equipment and medication during the process of healing. Some are young mothers, while others are elderly ladies who have lived with condition for years due to lack of care and attention. i have taken it as a personal responsibility to ensure they get the care they require. Give a hand, as we restore dignity to fellow humankind.
