Your Donations at Work: Laure Fistula Center, Nigeria

Laure Fistula Center was established in 1987 and performs over 500 fistula repair surgeries a year, including many referrals from throughout Nigeria as well as neighboring countries. They were recently accredited by the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) as an official fistula surgery training site; however, much of their equipment had been in use since its inception over 20 years ago and was therefore not in optimal condition. Funding from Fistula Foundation and our Small Grants Partnership with Johnson & Johnson allowed the Center to purchase much-needed new equipment and medical supplies in August in order to provide the highest quality of patient care and surgeon training possible.

“On behalf of the People of Kano State and Nigeria, I would like to thank all of you who made this possible and promise you that the equipment and your goodwill would be put to the best use to assist all patients with obstetric trauma.” ~ Dr. Kabiru Abubakar, Laure Fistula Center
