Due to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and the high percentage of patients that travel to our fistula clinic from the rural areas of Sierra Leone and Guinea, our fistula service at the Aberdeen Women’s Centre (AWC) is currently suspended. 

We are, however, continuing to operate our children’s clinic and maternity unit for the benefit of the local community around our centre.  It is our intention to continue with these services while we have the required level of staff and supplies available.

Rigorous screening of patients has been in place for many weeks and all precautions are being taken to help safeguard our staff and patients.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers during this extremely difficult time. 

We are monitoring the situation daily to enable swift responses throughout this developing situation and will provide further updates as necessary.

Today, an estimated 2 million women in Africa are suffering from obstetric fistula caused by prolonged, obstructed childbirth and lack of access to maternity care.

The effect on women is devastating and often condemns them to a life of solitude and despair.

Our aim is to help these women by providing free surgeries to heal their fistulas, free maternity care to prevent fistulas and ensure safe childbirth, and training local healthcare workers.   

We are already helping thousands of women every year.

We are helping women like YOU - mothers, daughters, sisters, cousins, wives, aunts, nieces......

With your help, we can do more.
