FISTULA FOUNDATION: Yunis’ Story: One Women’s Triumph Over Obstetric Fistula

Obstetric fistula is a childbirth injury that destroys a woman’s life. Meet Yunis. At the age of 19, she developed obstetric fistula, and suffered for 2 years. When a woman’s labor is obstructed and she cannot access emergency care such as a C-section, a fistula can develop. It leaves a woman incontinent and too often shunned by her community. At least one million women like Yunis in Africa and Asia suffer needlessly from untreated fistula.
