A Walk To Beautiful Program

On PBS there is a show that is called A Walk To Beautiful. It is about the Fistula hospital in Addis and is a very informing show to watch. It breaks the program (a nova program) up into parts so you can watch about 10 minute segments.
Some of the travel groups get to go to this hospital. I watched in case we did so I would have background knowledge. We didn't get to go though I did see the sign for it.
The program gives alot of insight into what these young women face with this problem. The rejection from their families and community is pretty intense. The number of women dealing with the problem is overwhelming. The doctor estimates that there is over 100,000 women in the countryside that are dealing with fistulas.
