VVF Patient & Yvonne

My friend Yvonne has befriended this lady who has had a successful VVF (vesico-vaginal fistula) surgery on board – the fistula is due to prolonged labor and with the delivery occurring only after the baby dies. The woman is always wet and unable to control the flow of urine. Around 100,000 new cases of VVF are reported every year and affects women who are very young and very poor. We are planning to provide surgery to over 200 women.
