MyExtendedHands A non-profit organization that helps women treat obstetric fistula.

As Howard Zinn quotes, ‘Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world’.

We are on the exact same mission of ending obstetric fistula in women in Nigeria  ( Africa) who are mostly forced to leave their post-partum condition untreated. Prolonged or unattended labor can cause the woman to face immense pain after giving birth in the form of obstetric fistula.

Our main objective is to make it possible for women with the least knowledge, financial, and other resources to experience exposure to the helping hands.

Our donors are the strongest pillars of the non-profit organization who have made it possible to treat and heal thousands of women suffering from obstetric fistula.

What is Obstetric fistula?

A woman needs to be continuously looked after in and after labor. The process of childbirth itself is very painful and the act which requires pushing so hard ends up in giving birth to more health problems. A fistula is the tearing of the tissue which creates a hole between the vagina and the rectum.
