The Fistula Foundation
February 12, 2013

About ten years ago I read an op ed column by Nicholas Kristoff in The Times about the devastating problem of obstetric fistula in the Third World. It opened my eyes and started me on a journey to help in whatever way I could. That was the beginning of my involvement with the Fistula Foundation.
The first fundraising event I helped put together was at the Waldorf Astoria in N>Y.C. I discovered that the Hotel coincidently was built on the site of the last fistula hospital in the City,torn down fistula had been virtually eradicated here.Our mission became to do whatever possible to do the same for the women of Africa and Asia.
My work with the Foundation as a member of the Board of Trustees has enriched my life immeasurably. I urge you to study our website,see the amazing work we have been doing and join us in our efforts.It will be a most soul- satisfying experience. Robert Tessler
