Review for The Fistula Foundation, San Jose, CA, USA
When in 2008 I saw the documentary film, ‘A Walk to Beautiful’, I was so moved by the tragic stories of women suffering from both the personal physical agony of living with an unrepaired fistula and the resulting shunning by family and community, I knew I had to do whatever I could to help. I learned a continuing monthly donation of $37.50 to the Fistula Foundation would provide enough funds for one woman a year to have her fistula surgically repaired and her life and family restored to her as a result. I wish I could afford more, but three years later I know there are three women who have been helped as a result of my ongoing support of this great organization. It’s my intention to continue to support the Fistula Foundation and their mission for the rest of my life. It’s an amazingly wonderful feeling knowing my small monthly donations, in essence, save lives. What could be better than that? ~ Marcia Hart
