UNFPA Zimbabwe is helping restore the dignity of women living with obsteric fistula through the Campaign to End Obsteric Fistula. In 2006, at the age of 16, Tuwede suffered an obstetric fistula during child birth. The injury is an abnormal opening that connects the vagina to another organ, like the bladder or rectum. It was confusing, frightening and humiliating for Tuwede.
