This is Rehema. She is 37 years old. She got an obstetric fistula in 2018. She subsequently discovered that she was pregnant.
At our recent camp, Dr Andrew operated on Rehema, and she was healed.
Rehema was married, but she divorced her husband because he was violent towards her, and abused her because of her condition, being wet all the time. She hopes to have another child at some point in the future, now that she is healed.
In the photograph, Rehema is pictured with Elizabeth, her four year old daughter, who stayed with her during her time at Kivulini Maternity Centre. Rehema is happy and thankful to Maternity Africa for her treatment and support.
