$450 provides lifesaving fistula repair surgery for one woman. An obstetric fistula is a hole between the vagina and rectum or bladder that is caused by prolonged obstructed labor, leaving a woman incontinent of urine or feces or both. Obstetric fistula most commonly occurs among women who live in undeveloped countries, who give birth without any access to medical help. A woman with fistula is too often rejected by her husband and pushed out of her village due to her foul smell. Of the one million women suffer from obstetric fistula, fewer than 20,000 are treated each year. This program plays a vital role in helping more women receive obstetric fistula treatment.
