Your Donations at Work: Chad

Your donations have supported fistula treatment in Chad since 2011, through the work of our partner Women and Health Alliance International (WAHA).

Over the last two years, WAHA reports that they were able to provide life-changing surgery to 310 women—many of whom (40 percent) were suffering from complex injuries requiring an advanced level of surgical skill.

Operating at two treatment sites, at the Center for Reproductive Health and Fistula Repair in the capital city of N’Djamena and at a district hospital in Abeche, WAHA’s surgeons also provided on-the-job training to five surgeons and 15 health care providers. In addition, your support helped fund outreach efforts, transportation for patients, and rehabilitation in the form of psychological support and workshops in N’Djamena.
