CCBRT fistula ambassadors doing outreach in Kagera
Greetings, and Happy New Year! We are excited to share with you some updates from our sister organization, CCBRT, from the last few months.
From July through November of 2021, 217 fistula repair surgeries were performed at CCBRT, the largest provider of fistula treatment in the country. Thanks in part to the generous support we receive through GlobalGiving, all costs of treatment are covered—from surgery, to transportation, to accommodation and meals.
CCBRT’s fistula program also recently conducted training for community health workers from the Dodoma and Singed regions of Tanzania, to improve their capacity to identify and refer patients for treatment. Fistula ambassadors from all over the country also attended a fistula conference hosted by CCBRT, to promote cross-regional learning and sharing of experiences.
We aim to eradicate obstetric fistula by providing safe delivery services and high-quality obstetrics care to those suffering from this debilitating condition, and your donations help keep treatment free for patients and provide funding for training and other resources. As always, we are so thankful for your support and look forward to sharing more updates in our next report.
