WORLDWIDE FISTULA FUND INC
November 26, 2012

I had read an article in Christianity Today a few years back. I could not get the picture of these ladies (some children, as young as 14) having to live over drains. Being a woman and in the medical field my heart ached for these women. Seeing so much "medical waste" and expense here in the U.S. got me thinking about the small cost for a huge difference in a lady's life. I started a business and told my husband that they would be the ones we supported with 10% of sales. I have had just a few comments about why I am not supporting something in the U.S. WELL until you can show me one person who has to live like that in the U.S. I will continue to do what I can for these women. These women are outcasts, but they are loved. I have seen some stories on how these women's life are changed (and only 400 per surgery). We look to the day we can donate thousands to help these ladies and all those volunteering. The true thankfulness and smiles on these healed women are remarkable. I tell others when at vending opportunities briefly about them so they know a portion of their purchase goes to such a wonderful cause. More and more women are getting familiar with what a fistula surgery is (in very general terms).
