We are building a hospital!!
It's been a long road, but the mighty ladies and gentlemen behind the Uganda Fistula Fund of TERREWODE have banned together and raised enough money to buy land for a hospital in Soroti, Uganda. THIS WEEK was the groundbreaking ceremony!! I've chaired the Board of Advisors for a two years now, and I'm so proud to be part of this organization. It's an incredible accomplishment for all involved!! This hospital will be the first of its kind dedicated to treat and prevent obstetric fistula. This is a much needed service for women who experience a harsh and sometimes fatal labor and delivery. Read this article from New Vision, Uganda's leading newspaper to learn more!
