Millions of women in developing countries live daily with the humiliation and dejection of Vesicovaginal Fistula (VVF), a devastating complication of childbirth. The World Health Organization estimates more than two million women and girls worldwide suffer from fistula(s), with 50,000 to 100,000 new cases each year. For many of the women in Angola, VVF has taken away so much more than just their health but it’s made them outcasts in their own communities. The Hem of His Garment program focuses on bringing hope back to the women who have been scarred and cast away due to vaginal fistulas. Lead by CHSC OB/GYN Dr. Priscilla Cummings, the Hem of His Garment provides fistula surgeries for all those who seek relief from VVF.
