BENEFITING: The Fistula Foundation
The Fistula Foundation believes no woman should suffer a life of isolation and misery simply for trying to bring a child into the world. The organization is dedicated to raising awareness of and funding for fistula repair, prevention, and educational programs worldwide to help eradicate fistula.
Anyone who donates to the Houston Fistula Foundation Fundraiser and leaves contact information will be entered into a drawing for a hand crocheted shawl in the style of the shawls given to fistula patients at the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia upon arrival at the hospital (picture coming soon). The winner of the shawl may either keep the shawl or choose to have the shawl donated to the hospital in his or her name.
