Fistula Foundation: Your Donations at Work - Angola
In 2013, Fistula Foundation began working with a new partner in Damba, Angola, known as Unidade Fístula Obstétrica (UFO). UFO is the only fistula treatment center in northern Angola, a country known for its poor health care infrastructure and the highest rate of child mortality in the world. In the first half of this project alone, 154 women received free fistula repair surgeries as well as free transportation, nutritious meals and accommodation as they recovered. In addition, two local surgeons and several nurses received training.
