The organization, Extended Hands, that helps women in Nigeria (Africa) treat obstetric fistula without charging any sort of medical fee for it has completed numerous successful projects which have gained international recognition as well. Our donors who have made it possible for thousands of women to eliminate the cause of extreme pain and embarrassment from their life must be given some valuable insights about the victorious projects that we’ve accomplished.
- To contribute in the great cause of helping women with dangerously and painfully untreated medical conditions, the Extended Hands Foundation, sponsored by SNEPCo/NNPC, was able to cure 20 women with the VVF condition through free surgery at University College Hospital, Ibadan.
- In 2015, the Extended Hands Foundation made it possible, with the help of empathetic and humane gestures by the donors, to treat 15 women with VVF at Kwara Specialist Hospital in Ilorin, Kwara State. The procedure happened with the assistance of Diamond Bank PLC.
- 2016 was the miraculous year for around 50 women in Kebbi State who were successfully treated for the VVF condition that they had been living with for quite some time. Sponsored by SNEPCo/NNPC, the humanitarian effort was carried out by the Extended Hands Foundation with the intention of ending the cause of immense pain and embarrassment.
- In 2017, with the kind help from SNPECo/NNPC, the Extended Hands Foundation again successfully achieved their main target by treating 35 women with obstetric fistula, also known as the vesicovaginal fistula. The whole procedure was held at the Ministry of Women Affairs & Social Development VVF Center in Gesse, Birin-Kebbi.
