Meet Bamba

Last week, we released our first story of transformation, a young woman whose life has been changed forever. This week, I’d like to introduce you to our second story of healing: Bamba.

Bamba is a seventeen-year old child bride – a cultural norm that leads to 50% of fistula cases. She lives with her husband in Kabala, a rural town in Northern Sierra Leone, far from safe medical care. After three painful days in labor, she gave birth to a stillborn baby and developed obstetric fistula. She traveled to Bo in public transportation and received her surgery at the West Africa Fistula Foundation. Bamba has been through so much and thanks to our donors and supporters, she can return to her home with a changed life!
