Kamala and her husband are both illiterate farmers, and very poor. During Kamala’s last pregnancy, she labored at home for two days until her husband managed to take her to a local hospital. An emergency C-section was performed, but sadly the baby had died in utero.
Not only that, but Kamala began leaking urine from that day on. Not knowing that the condition was treatable, the couple suffered both physically and psychologically, and faced significant social stigma in their village.
Finally, after eight long years, two men from their village brought Kamala to Kathmandu Model Hospital, where she underwent a successful fistula repair surgery. The successful treatment of the fistula brought back her happiness, and the couple is now ready to make a fresh new start.
