DFC Called “Best Fistula Facility in Country”

December 21, 2017

DFC Patient.

by WFF Staff

This year, Danja Fistula Center (DFC) hosted Niger’s national fistula camp.

With our operations partner in Niger, SIM, we provided 61 surgeries to women with fistula through a partnership with United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and Niger’s National Network for the Eradication of Fistula (REF).

It does something for the heart of a surgeon when people run to get what is needed.

You helped us build DFC in 2012. In July of 2017, the Director of Public Health for Maradi and REF leaders requested that DFC host their annual, national fistula camp after they saw our gorgeous, state-of-the-art facilities during a visit!

This is the best fistula facility in the country!

From November 6 to 10, 37 medical professionals and patients were transported from across Niger to DFC to receive medical education and healing at this national event.

This is the most education and healing DFC has ever managed at once!

We are so proud that DFC is receiving recognition as the best fistula facility in the country!

We provide about 1/3 of all fistula surgeries performed in Niger.

Throughout the event, DFC Staff Members were complimented by patients for their compassionate care.
