The President's message

Women’s health is a significant determinant of global health and the health of future generations. Vesicovaginal Fistula is an abnormality that affects millions of women across Africa. It hasn’t received the attention it deserves due to lack of awareness and inadequate Health Care in rural parts. This has been a significant concern for me. After doing my extensive research, I’ve concluded that if more people do not get involved with helping these women and young girls, cases of Vesicovaginal Fistula will increase in Africa in the near future.  

 

HVVFF was founded because we want to help these women and girls. We want this foundation to be a safe haven for these women and girls who have been neglected for years while they faithfully pray to God for a miracle. The condition VVF strips these women of their dignity, virtue, and the embodiment of their beauty.

 

However, despite the VVF condition and the stigma that comes with it, these females of all ages still show high Strength, faith, and hope daily by persevering and continuing to find a reason to smile. Their Strength has truly inspired me and motivates me to give back and help in any way we can to give them a fresh start.
