BENEFITING: The Fistula Foundation
Obstetric fistula is a serious problem in the world's poorest countries, where most mothers give birth without any medical help. In these cases, if a woman's labor becomes obstructed, she will endure days of painful, prolonged labor.
Her baby is unlikely to survive. If the woman survives, her body is literally broken by childbirth. Uncontrollably leaking bodily wastes, these women are shunned by their families and communities. So many are young girls. And the numbers are staggering. More than 2 million women are currently living in this way, suffering from this heartbreaking, treatable condition.
Donations go directly to the Fistula Foundation- there are no fees, commissions etc. You will receive an email from the foundation acknowledging your gift personally. We ask our colleagues, patients and friends to help us make a difference in these women's lives. Any amount is most welcome!!
