CAPE COAST:25 women undergo skills training
25 women treated in Fistula complications have successfully undergone three-months training in various skills of their interest in the Central region.
They were trained in areas like soap making, batik and tie and dye dressmaking, confectionary and pastry making as well as business management, marketing and customer care and packaging.
The Gratis Foundation in collaboration with the UNFPA organised the training for the women in Cape Coast to ostensibly give them opportunity to improve their lives aftermath the difficulty they went through as a result of their diseases.
Mrs Frederica Enyonam Hanson, UNFPA Country Midwifery Adviser said the UNFPA has taken the challenge to campaign against fistula and also to give vocational training for patients because most of them are rejected by their families and friends which makes it difficult for them to make a living.
She therefore advised expectant mothers to seek early medical care before and after delivery, to avoid Obstetric Fistula complications and maternal mortality.
