Since its inception, the goal of the Extended Hands Foundation founded by Nollywood star actress Stephanie Linus has been to restore hope and put smiles on the faces of women.

This pool effort goes a long way to show that her award winning movie 'DRY' is more than just a movie, but a tool for touching the lives of women actually living with this condition.
