Freedom From Fistula | obstetric fistula caused by obstructed childbirth

Celebrating 10 Years of Freedom in 2018

Over the last 10 years we have helped 120,000 women and children, trained more than than 500 nurses and doctors, safely delivered more than 10,000 babies and performed over 6500 Fistula surgeries in Africa. We have LOTS to celebrate and hope you enjoy sharing our success - we couldn’t have done it without you.

Follow our road to Freedom

When Mercy Ships decided not to continue its land-based fistula project in Sierra Leone in May 2008, FFF was born.  We have expanded our services considerably since then.  Follow our road to Freedom on the timeline below.
