HEALING HANDS OF JOY

Healing Hands of Joy provides post-surgical rehabilitation to women with obstetric fistula. They give the women health education, mental health counseling, spiritual counseling, teach them income generating skills and give them a micro loan They graduate from this program as Safe Motherhood Ambassadors and return to their villages to find other fistula victims and teach young girls about the importance of pre-natal and obstetric care.
