Beautiful Ladies

These beautiful ladies are all some of women we are helping or have helped with fistula - here a complication of childbirth that leaves a woman incontinent. There's lots of other work around the hospital, but taking care of these women is definitely a highlight! 

Often story starts out ugly and bloody.
But then we have a chance to help!
Some babies do survive (rarely) and they are so precious!

We sometimes diagnose them immediately postpartum: a difficult recovery.
Women of fortitude.
Some are so young - 15 years old. 
Sometimes our kids play together.

Awesome when loving husbands come - they've been together 17 years.
