JATU, Sierra Leone – 2010

The child-bride didn’t know exactly how old she was. Jatu thought she might be 15, but her playful grin and bright pink polka dot nail polish suggested she was a lot younger.
Jatu was one of the estimated two million girls and women in 2010 who suffered from obstetric fistula.
ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND THANK YOU’s, reflects upon the precious patients who received the 100,000 free surgical procedures provided by Mercy Ships since 1978.
