Nov 4, 2014 – In Pictures: Stephanie Okereke Linus Foundation Sponsors VVF Surgeries For Ibadan Women At UCH
Nollywood actress Stephanie Okereke Linus’s foundation (Extended Hands) in partnership with SNEPCo/NNPC recently travelled to UCH (University College Hospital) in Ibadan to visit VVF victims mainly women.
The costly repair surgery was sponsored for 20 women who had been living with the life-threatening condition for varying period of time.
The 20 lucky women had the repair surgeries done at no cost to them and their families.
Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF) is a serious disability that can be experienced by women after childbirth. They are holes resulting from the breakdown in the tissue between the vaginal wall and the bladder or rectum caused by unrelieved obstructed labour. The consequence of such damage is a woman’s inability to control the flow of urine or faeces. It occurs more often in young women during childbirth, as their bodies are not yet mature for the process.
May God bless her and others helping the needy in the society.
