Hello! I highly recommend The Fistula Foundation as a magnificent and meaningful charity. I've been a donor since 2008 since I saw the foundation on Oprah. The mission of the foundation is so important and compelling. I learned that about 2 million women/girls in Africa are suffering from obstetric fistulas--which happens when a woman/girl is in labor for so long (no OB/GYNs, few hospitals, little transportation), that the pressure results in death of body tissue, resulting in incontinence and a life of social isolation. Horrible. I learned that $37.00 a month pays for surgery for one person a year. (Of course, any amount helps). They also provide scholastic education and counseling during the healing process! I love knowing that one girl a year has a chance at a better life due to my contributions to this wonderful cause. 4 girls so far for me! Go for it! Join in! :)
