Bossena, Birtukan and Agegneush were suffering from obstetric fistula. Contrary to the 2 to 3 million women still waiting for fistula treatment, these three Ethiopian women were able to access surgery to repair the fistula.

This video takes place in Ethiopia, following these women from the village to the hospital where they will finally be treated. Only 10,000 – 15,000 women in the world are treated for fistula each year, it’s a drop in the ocean of the 100 000 new cases occurring annually.
