This photo, shared on Dr. Catherine Hamlin’s Facebook page shows a patient six years after suffering from an obstetric fistula.  She was abandoned, living alone in a dark hut- ostracized from her community.

You can see in the photo how she is thriving after treatment at Ethiopia’s Hamlin Fistula hospital, but what if her suffering could have been prevented in the first place?  Strong Women, Strong World supports midwifery programs in Afghanistan and Ethiopia which not only provides young women with a chance for an education, but also helps to prevent obstetric fistula and the devastating consequences.
