It takes more than an operation to get the Fistula survivors back on their feet, Wadadia led by its founder and lead director Madam Habiba C. Mohammed, through the support of Fistula Foundation is devoted to ensuring that women suffering from obstetric fistula do undergo the life restoring surgeries, and reintegrate them back in the community. This is through the reintegration programme that helps the women through the recovery process both physically and psychologically by offering psycho-social support through individual therapy sessions and group therapy sessions in their support groups and economically empowering the women through vocational skills training. This formed part of the discussion during the exchange programme visit by Beyond Fistula who also run a programme on reintegration of fistula survivors.  Madam Debbie Eisenberger Matityahu (Founder) and Christine Fox from Beyond Fistula shared on the importance of reintegration of the survivors and imparting of vocational skills to them. Emphasis was also laid to the holistic approach to reintegration so as to enable survivors perform their roles in the society well.
