IN CHILDBIRTH, WOMEN AND THEIR BABIES ARE 40 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO DIE OR SUFFER SEVERE INJURIES.
In Uganda living with severe childbirth injuries is very debilitating: most women live without running water and electricity and the loss of control of bodily functions can lead to rejection and social isolation. An operation can transform the lives of these women and enable them to return to a normal life in their community.
We aim to improve the health, well-being and dignity of women in the Rwenzori region of western Uganda by providing training and education to healthcare professionals locally
- Surgical training camps
- Sharing new techniques and procedures
- Providing educational support for training
- Locally delivered programmes
