Today’s Doing Good instalment focuses on the Fistula Foundation as they take Action on Fistula in Kenya.

Action on Fistula is a 3-year initiative funded by Astellas Pharma EMEA and coordinated by Fistula Foundation to treat 1,200 women suffering from fistula and lay the groundwork for lasting availability of fistula treatment for women in Kenya. This campaign aims to increase awareness, access and availability of treatment for women who suffer with obsteric fistula.

Fistula Foundation believes no woman should endure a life of misery and isolation simply for trying to bring a child into this world. That’s why we’re dedicated to ending the suffering caused by obstetric fistula, a childbirth injury caused by prolonged, unrelieved obstructed labor that renders a woman incontinent – an injury that can only be treated through surgery. Visit their official site and follow them on Twitter for more information.
