Actress Stephanie Linus Takes Fistula Awareness Campaign To Borno State

Actress and human rights advocate Stephanie Linus has once again demonstrated an unrelenting fight against fistula and child marriage with her recent fistula awareness campaign in Borno State. Using her award-winning movie – DRY as a tool to educate young girls and women, the actress pushed forward her message for fistula prevention and child rights protection.

Obstetric fistula is a severe condition that has devastating consequences for women and young girls. It is prevalent in poor countries, communities with high number of child brides and among women who give birth without access to medical help. If a woman’s labor becomes obstructed, she could remain in excruciating pain for days before her baby is finally dislodged. Her baby likely dies, and she is often left with an obstetric fistula, a small hole created by constant pressure from the foetus, which renders her incontinent. A woman with fistula constantly leaks urine, feaces or both. Stephanie’s goal is to eradicate fistula in Africa.

The program was supported by the UNFPA, where Ms. Linus serves as Regional Ambassador for Maternal Health in West and Central Africa.

  1. Why Borno?
    All Ngos keep taking everything to the north meanwhile the south and south east is in worse condition. I went to bayelsa and anambra one time for outreach and she'd tears. This is so unfair

    1. Child marriage is common in core north but she has to be careful, those guys have a way of reasoning.

  2. This is one lady using her platform for good unlike those that have decided to use theirs for prostitution.

  3. Way to go Steph..God bless and empower u

  4. Well done stephanie. God bless you always.

    God bless Stephanie.

  6. My love for Stephanie doesn't have part two. Well done on your great work. Generations shall call you blessed.

  7. An actress I so much admire, see how she uses her platform to make impacts,trying to change the narrative for this girls. Underage marriage should be declared a national emergency in the north, it has damaged a lot of girls. Well done Stephanie
