Isha is 48 years old. She has never been to school. At age 12 she was married, becoming her husband’s third wife.
Isha became pregnant as soon as she hit puberty and during her fifth pregnancy her child became obstructed. She was in labour for seven days and although she made it to a hospital, her child was still-born.
She quickly realised she was leaking urine and had no control of what was happening. Sitting, standing, laying, she was always leaking urine. She was shocked and scared and started hiding her bed clothes when she realised she was smelling.
Isha spent her nights crying and lived like this for 23 years.
A friend told her about the Aberdeen Women’s Centre. There was a screening team which visited her town soon after she heard of the centre and she received the news she could be helped.
The team took her to the centre where she had the surgery and is dry!
