Worldwide Fistula Fund
The Worldwide Fistula Fund has just opened a state of the art fistula center in the west African country of Niger. The project is 15 years in the making, and provides comprehensive services for women in west Africa that are impacted by an obstetric fistula. We have a team of providers on the ground that include a fistula surgeon, hospital director, nursing staff and other medical providers, but we are in great need of anesthesia assistance.
