October 11, Dr. Mike Bishop from the UK and Dr. Jerry Putman from the US arrived and began assessments right away on waiting fistula patients. By the end of the camp October 24th, 67 women were operated. Of these; 44 of them received surgery for childbirth injury and 23 had fistula repair. All these are receiving excellent follow-up care from the full-time staff in the VVF Ward. Dr. John Lenberger also from the UK came for training and plans to return as a VVF surgeon for future camps.
Thank you all our donors for the generous support that has enabled the VVF program to restore dignity among fistula women.
