Yvonne Baradahana, 49, sustained an obstetric #fistula in 1991 while giving birth at home. She managed to deliver three children despite this. Her third birth was at a hospital, and the doctor said they could not repair her fistula because it had occurred so long ago. She heard #MSF was coming to her district and was treating women with her condition. After a consultation, the team offered fistula repair surgery. Successful fistula repair can mean a second chance at life for many women. “I’m really happy because the sickness I went to get treated for is healed”, says Yvonne. #IWD #IWD2015 ©Martina Bacigalupo/VU, 2015” By doctorswithoutborders on Instagram.
