THE STORY:

I would love the Priests to be my Fundraiser for this noble cause, Kamaiba Habitat Home owners Association[ kamaibahabitathome@gmail.com] is a community based organization registered with Government of the Republic of Uganda.its based in Habitat village in Kamaiba parish, central division of kasese municipality kasese district in Uganda.we made a baseline community research in our district and found out that most rural poor women and girls were suffering from Obstetric fistula[ Obstetric fistula is a hole that is formed between the vagina and bladder, or vagina and rectum, of a girl or woman during a difficult childbirth. An obstetric fistula is caused by prolonged and obstructed labour when the head of the baby cannot pass safely through the birth canal of the mother. The soft tissue of the vagina and bladder and/or rectum is pressed between the fetal skull and the pelvic bone. This pressure cuts off the blood supply to the tissues, causing them to disintegrate (ischemic necrosis). A hole is then left between the woman’s vagina and bladder, or vagina and rectum, or both. Consequently, the girl or woman passes urine and/or feces continuously into the vagina. In nearly every case of fistula, the baby dies. When a woman passes urine in this way she is said to have a vesico-vaginal fistula, this makes them feel ashamed and stigmatized all the tyme.So this is our cause to help them go to hospital and get better treatment and pass information to all women to always give birth from a hospital and not using traditional birth attendants
