I wrote a book about women with fistula five years ago. i want a help to publish it.

Fistula is a problem which is caused by prolonged labor. The out come of early marriage, which stigmatized the young girls, which gives them disabilities , nerve problem and isolate them from their community.

Please help me get it published and we fight for the young girls together.

Dear Queenie,

Thank you for the comment. Fistula is worse than HIV, pregnancy and others. But many of us have no clue about it. If you see the young girls and all the women who suffer from it, you'd have also a program to support them. i plan to train them, making leather beads, leather bags, dress making, that they can make little money and support themselves. Hopefully, I'll start my class early January. I've already provided the materials I need such as leather, fabrics, treads, etc.

God willing, I'll be successful. If I got support to publish this book and sell it, that'll help me to expand my support to them. I might be able to ride in the countryside and collect others and get help.

Thank you Queenie, you've such a lovely name

Mulatwa, I thank you for your stories and agree about the devastating impact of Fistula.  I support One by One, an organization based in Seattle, WA that is fighting Obstetric Fistula in East Africa.  We are with you. I hope you have been successful in your work and I will keep you in my thoughts.
