Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr is fronting a new campaign to raise awareness of a common birth complication.

The Virgin Unite Fight For Fistula campaign – launched at a Halloween event on Richard Branson's Necker Island – aims to raise awareness of fistula, a condition caused by a hole in the birth canal.

“Fistula is caused when a woman endures a complicated, prolonged delivery without sufficient access to proper medical care,” says Miranda. “For the 3.5 million women suffering from Fistula the injuries leave them incontinent and in most cases their baby dies.”
