“It’s such a joyful feeling, putting a smile on someone’s face. Many thanks to SNEPCo/ NNPC for supporting our Extended Hands Foundation. Thanks for helping us touch the lives of many women living with Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF)” said Stephanie
In the past 5 years, the actress has been working tirelessly to support the eradication of the deadly disease. She is currently working on a movie about VVF Syndrome.
See some pictures from her recent campaign against VVF in Nigeria:
Vesico-Vaginal Fistula (VVF) is a hole and/or channel between the bladder and vagina or the vagina and the rectum (recto-vaginal fistulae – RVF) developing during prolonged and/or obstructed labour. VVF causes urine and faeces to leak out of the bladder continuously (incontinence). This can lead to painful infections of the bladder and the kidneys.
The incidence of VVF per 1,000 childbirths and the total number of new VVF cases per year are unknown.
