Need: Vol surgeons needed in DRC to help fistula rape survivors
HI all. I'm just back from meeting with a nurse in Goma region of Democratic Republic of Congo. She reports having about 14 women women needing emergency fistula surgeries a week who are being turned away from clinics she is referring them to as they have no capacity to deal with high number of women needing this surgical intervention. If you are an MD surgeon or in touch with any groups who are working on such issues, please get in touch with me and I'll pass on the contact.
Thanks, Anne-christine d'Adesky - WE-ACTx www.we-actx.org
