Fistula KNH Campaign

Women who have undergone Female Genital mutilation there is a 98% chance of developing Fistula and high rate of deaths during Kenya alone 470 women die every month giving birth...and every year over 1000 women develop fistula...and then they are told it's a curse when they cannot control their urine and bowel movement. FGM kills and no form should be allowed...plse sign the petition
now you see what happened to this 76 years old woman as a child affected the rest of her life..just a little nick and prick it's murder!!!!! most of women suffer and hide in shame:( Every year, about 1000 women develop fistula, a condition in which one loses control of their bowels in this country according to statistics from AMREF . It is one condition that takes away the dignity of a woman and most victims are usually stigmatized and considered social outcasts. The good news though is that it is repairable. Sylvia Chebet today met a 76 year old grandmother who has lived with the condition more than half her life.
