Transform a woman’s life, like Astou’s

For 20 years, Astou carried a secret shame. She suffered the loss of her baby while giving birth. But she also suffered a devastating injury – called an obstetric fistula – which left her leaking urine all the time.

You can help fund a life-changing surgery for a woman like Astou. Through our local partners, we are helping women find healing at last, so they can lead full and happy lives.

Give hope and healing. Give now.

Volunteers on board our hospital ships can transform lives with free, safe surgery and provide training for local healthcare professionals.

Regular donations allow us to plan for the future. Please will you help transform a life like Astou’s?

Give hope and healing. Give monthly.
