YOU, how much you love yourself, you live with yourself and you never want to leave yourself. In the same way, it is not a demand but even a ‘law of love’ that if you love something / someone, then you should always live with it and should never leave it, in any case. Thus why we don’t want to live with and we leave them with whom we love; perhaps we don’t love them truly because any deficiency should not be the reason to leave.
Yes, I am talking about husbands who leave their wives with or without any reason (s). I am more particular about those stone-hearted husbands who leave their wives just because of a disease ‘Obstetric Fistula’. Yap, it is a chronic but curable obstetric / gynecological / reproductive disease of women. According to a survey, each year, around 150,000 women worldwide are affected by this disorder. It is directly linked to one of the major causes of maternal mortality. Around 3 Million women are still untreated in Asia & Africa. Women who are having ‘Obstetric Fistula’ suffer constant incontinence, shame, social segregation and health problems etc. Many affected women have lost their babies during birth and still desirous to have children again. So many suffered woman cannot perform domestic tasks and even they are not allowed to cook food because they are considered dirty, unclean and having very unpleasant odor. Many of them had to relocate to the homes of their parents and relatives. Due to their disability to attend their marital obligations their lives are full of isolation, humiliation and rejection by the community. Around 50% have been divorced, separated, asked to go back to their parents or abandoned by their husbands.
Believe it, it is accepted worldwide that it is a remediable illness and so many women have been cured successfully and resumed to their normal lives. Salute to their loyal husbands who did not leave their wives helplessly, fought with this illness with their wives and succeeded finally. God always save the humanity / world from Diseases and Disasters. However, if these are occurred then we the whole humanity should combat with them as ‘one community’. Thus, on the eve of “International Day to End Obstetric Fistula 23 May”, we should be united to do something according to our capabilities and we should add our efforts to contribute towards United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG-3) which is ensuring healthy lives particularly maternal health. We should always be remembered that healthy society is only possible with healthy mothers.
SAVE WOMEN, SAVE MOTHERS, SAVE HUMANITY, SAVE WORLD…
