Your Donations at Work - Babbar Ruga Fistula Hospital

Essential medical equipment delivered to fistula hospital in Nigeria

The National Obstetric Fistula Center in Babbar Ruga, Nigeria, is part of the country’s National Fistula Program network. While it is able to perform hundreds of repair surgeries each year, one of its head fistula surgeons, Dr. Sadiya Nasir, reported to us that much of their equipment had become worn and outdated. Funding from Fistula Foundation and our small grants partnership through Johnson & Johnson enabled the Center to purchase much-needed new equipment and medical supplies this year in order to provide the highest quality of patient care and surgeon training possible.
