For over 30 years I worked with an int'l non profit org'n and interacted with many more. The Fistula Foundation has given me an opportunity to continue into my retiremt to serve the poor and marginalised, especially women. I met many women with fistula throughout my career, and wept at the extent of their suffereing. However, seeing the profound impact on their lives as a result of the work of the Fistula Foundationand brings hope and joy. I take my responsibility as a Board member seriously, especially around accountability, transparency, effectiveness and efficiency. The high ratings the Fistula Foundation receives annually from several charity 'watch dog' groups attests to its professionalism and high standards. But it is also an organisation with great heart. It is a privilege to serve on this Board - to work with colleagues who have a passion to end suffering, and to partner with donors who so generoulsy share out of their resouces. Together we are impacting the lives of thousdands of women.
