    Weʼve raised £578 to help women with obstetric fistula regain their lives

    Ribchester, United Kingdom
    Funded on Saturday, 11th November 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    How would you feel if after being pregnant for nine months, and, after carrying this precious gift you ended up .... with no baby and were left incontinent.

    This is the sad truth for over a million women suffering obstetric fistula in developing countries.
    Africa Mercy is going to Cameroon and, amongst other surgeries, hopes to perform 500 obstetric fistula surgeries.
    I have been asked to support and mentor 10 local nurses, who will work alongside Mercy Ship nurses, to look after these women before, during and after surgery. It is a huge responsibility but one that I will give my all too having seen the amazing difference this surgery makes to these women and their families.
    Please help me give these women back their lives and make them smile again.

      Hi everyone .... Just to let you know that the blog has been running for a few weeks now Www.gggonthego.wordpress.com Surgery is going well for these wonderful women and we have had quite a few successes. I am blessed to be able to spend time with them. We have no idea the suffering they go through but they leave our floating home with a smile on their face and hope. I have extended the date for fundraising so please spread the word and I am more than willing to do some talks when I am home for a month in December.
