  • Irego: My Parents Hated Me

    Irego was 15 when she was raped, became pregnant and developed an obstetric fistula that forced her to hide from her own family. Because of your generosity, she received life-changing fistula surgery and is now a tailoring instructor at the nearly completed TERREWODE Women’s Community Hospital.
