Review for The Fistula Foundation, San Jose, CA, USA
I first heard about the Fistula Foundation in 2004. Listening to the tragic stories of African women who were outcast from their villages and families because of complications due to childbirth was heartbreaking. As a women and having experienced a difficult childbirth myself I could not help but feel some connection. Here in the first world I was able to have proper medical care. In Africa, these poor women suffer and not only do they have to deal with the challenging medical and health issues but are often made to be outcasts. When they have not been able to heal properly after a difficult birth they are often are considered deformed and sent to live in a small isolated hut away from their families and neighbours. Can you imagine? All this because they did not get medical assistance during childbirth. I immediately wanted to know more. Once I learned how my donations could specifically help rebuild the life of a women I could not help but get involved. I have continued to donate as much as I can afford each year since to help give these women a chance to regain their dignity and their lives back.
