Reconstructing Lives: Tuwede's Story

  • Published on: 15/06/2016
  • A year ago, Tuwede Adam (36) was sitting in her home dejected and sad having suffered from fistula for almost 20 years. In 1996, while giving birth at home during an agonising four-day labour at the age of 16, Tuwede suffered this birth injury that left her incontinent for 19 years but now, thanks to UNFPA's fistula repair camps programme, Tuwede is a new woman and gained back her life.
