Early Marriage | Habiba's Story | UNICEF

Habiba, now 17, lives in a small village in southern Niger’s Tibiri region. Married three years ago, she has since endured a tragedy that illustrates some of the worst perils of early marriage.

“I was given in marriage when I turned 14,” says Habiba. “At that time I was healthy. I became pregnant one year after the marriage. I was in labour for two days and was transferred to a regional hospital where I had a caesarean. That’s when I suffered a fistula.”
