Mehak is a fistula survivor who was ‘repaired’ by Dr Shershah Syed and his team at the Kohi Goth Hospital in Landhi, Sindh. She tells us that she lived with Obstetric Fistula for ten years in complete agony before she was operated upon recently. Due to the nature of this pregnancy-related condition or disability caused by inappropriate medical attention in the most underprivileged areas of the world, it remains underestimated. Fistula is common in the interior of the provinces of Sindh and Balochistan.
Mehak recorded her testimony with us on the sidelines of the pilot activity of the NGO, Gawaahi. NGO team participants were Amina Agha, Ishma Alvi and Naveen Naqvi.
