Now when Nigerien deputies will get an idea about what the internet is ( because they dont use it ) then may be they will start reduce taxes on bringing a laptop in Niger

that is so sad about the women being shunned by their families. At least they are managing to earn some income.

I've heard about Dr Hamlin(?) an Australian doctor who works with women with fistula injuries. I think she might be in Ethiopia.
Before I saw her on tv - I didn't know such a thing existed.

It's good some are able to get treatment. There is so much pain and suffering the could be removed if only proper medical care were available. Kudos to you for helping support these women!

Please excuse my intermittent comments lately. Summer (well in some parts of the world) brings much extra work my direction. I'll visit and leave a comment as often as possible, however.

Shalom Dina, from the other Dina.
So glad to find your blog today.
See you again.

It must be very frustrating that something seemingly so simple can cause such turmoil. I wish these ladies every ounce of luck in their endeavour!

Hi Dina. I'm happy to know that women make things and the money goes directly to them which is not always the case. And thank goodness for those 6 doctors!!
