Not Fewer than 50 women have benefited from the free United Nations Population Fund, UNFPA-sponsored VVF Surgery in Gombe.

The UNFPA carried out the free treatment in collaboration with the Gombe state government with the support of the Fistula Foundation and the Norwegian government.
The surgery was conducted at the Gombe State Specialist Hospital and the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Dr Mu’azu Shu’aibu, said that it was done out of sympathy for the situation the women go through whenever they find themselves with that health challenge.

He said that the more the women suffer from not only urinary incontinence but also toilet incontinence that prevents them from entering the community, they are rejected by discrimination by the same community.

The representative of UNFPA in the field, Dr Olanre Bajuwa, said that their efforts are always to see how they can help women with such problems.

Dr Bajuwa said that he does not see why women are being discriminated against or are being left to die of frustration because they have found themselves in such a problem.

The Director of Fistula Foundation Nigeria Dr. Musa Isa, said during the ceremony of the 50 women in Gombe that services rendered were free of charge including the Empowerment program.

He listed the services to include surgery, medications, skills acquisition training and provision of empowerment kits.

Some of the women who benefited from the treatment programme praised the authorities and the government of Gombe state for the free treatment given to them.

The women said that they are now happy and will return to their husbands in good health.
