The module is expected to help at least a total of 200 fistula patient across the Teso sub-region
The Association for Rehabilitation and Re-Orientation of Women for Development (TERREWODE) east-north office Soroti, has donated a fistula repair module to Soroti Regional Referral Hospital.
The repair module containing medication drugs and equipment donated by Direct Relief International was on Thursday delivered to the hospital by David Amudu the executive body member and Stella Apio, the east-north manager TERREWODE.
Amudu said it is to help the fistula patients who have difficulty in accessing medication given the fact that there are many young women in Teso who are silently suffering with the fistula.
According to Amudu, the module is expected to help at least a total of 200 fistula patient across the Teso sub-region.
He added that the same assistance has already been extended to Mbale and Mulago hospitals.
Amudu encouraged women to come out openly to the doctors and get treatment since it is a free service.
Annet Ajuro the assistant stores manager while receiving the assistance on behalf of the hospital administration said they are still faced with the shortage of the repair modules due the overwhelming number of fistula patients.
She said Soroti Referral Hospital gets at least 4-6 fistula patents in a week.
Ajuro urged other development partners to emulate what TERREWODE is doing in helping the women.
