If you’ve never heard of fistula, you’re not alone. It is an injury that has been all but eliminated in the United States but is commonplace in many developing countries. After enduring days of agonizing, obstructed labor, a woman’s body is literally broken, her baby often stillborn. Unable to control certain bodily functions, she is often ostracized by her community.
Right now, hundreds of thousands of women across the world are suffering from this heartbreaking but easily treatable injury. The Fistula Foundation’s Love-A-Sister program helps cover the $450 cost of a free, safe fistula surgery. Help heal a woman.
