First women to receive surgeries at the hospital

The photo from the Independent includes Dr. Josephine Namugenyi, Medical Director of the hospital (shown in white coat). Patients are cared for by an all women team, from the medical director, nurses, administration, and executives (one exception is the pharmacist, a valued man on the team). The professional Uganda staff of women brings special comfort to patients.

Hospital gowns are sewn by former fistula patients trained by Terrewode in tailoring.

And speaking of love, this is what it is all about. What we all work hard for: bringing women back to their family, whole and healthy.
