     After she develop fistula things began to change. She reported “I was so sad in God. I never expected to be well again. When all this happened, my husband wasn’t there for me. He divorced me… I lost the happiness I had before fistula. Thanks to God, now I am cured. I heard about HHoJ from Ambassador Terefech Tadesse and I was so happy to join… Now I will help the women in my village to make them safe from obstetric fistula. I will fight to prevent fistula.”
