Patient Stories: Olga
Marie Olga, (39) from Andasibe Vavatenina lived with fistula for 13 years.
During that long period, members of her own family looked down on her and she hid herself at home. She was no longer able to attend local gatherings because she felt so unwell and the smell of her leaking urine was embarrassing.
Fortunately, Olga heard about the free treatment at the Freedom From Fistula Centre. At the same time a family member of a former patient spoke to Olga about Fistula, the care she could receive, and brought her to Tamatave to our clinic.
Now that Olga is healed and FREE FROM FISTULA she wants to live a quiet life, no longer having to hide from the eyes of others.Olga mentioned that she’s willing to speak to the women who suffer from fistula in their village to come to the Fistula Care Centre in Tamatave so they too can find healing and as a sign of thanks to the Doctor and whole team who supported her during her stay.
