Winnie Nakalema, a nurse administrator at Kitovu Hospital in Uganda, was one of four women recently presented with the “Courageous Women in Uganda” award at the U.S. Embassy in Kampala. The award celebrates “ordinary women doing extraordinary acts at personal risk in an effort to uplift the communities they serve.” Staff at Kitovu Hospital call Winnie the “star” of the fistula ward — we are honored to have provided support to Kitovu’s fistula program since 2012!

Watch the above video to learn more about how Winnie is helping improve the lives of women living with obstetric fistula in Uganda.
