The women of Beyond Fistula in Kenya have suffered one of the most traumatic conditions a mother could experience.
Fistula is a condition that can occur during labor, then often to young or small framed females. Beside the terrible damage the labour dose to the women’s lower limbs, it often lead to serious injuries or death of the child.
Beyond Fistula is a non profit started by Dr Debbie to help them rebuild their lives after surgery through counselling, vocational training and scholarships.
The Rural Retail holds regular weaving workshops where women can support each other, learn about entrepreneurship and develop as sustainable manufactures.
You can support the women individually with their lifestyle needs or the Beyond Fistula Organisation.
