New Day has received the following update from the Children’s Surgical Center in Phnom Penh Cambodia: CSC-Newday-VVF report Sept ’11
Since our US$10,000 grant in February 2011 US$3,200 has been spent on the following:
1. radio advertising to encourage fistula sufferers to come forward and seek help
2. 5 successful fistula consultations and surgeries
3. 10 consultations with sufferers who are in the process of scheduling their surgeries.
CSC is concentrating on the training of one of their surgeons (and their only female surgeon) in performing successful fistula surgeries. A visiting specialist in this area will be providing her with additional training and support so that she can continue to help women who are being assisted through the project to heal and move forward with their lives.
