The Fistula Foundation
March 24, 2011
I have been an active Circle of Friends volunteer with the Fistula Foundation since the October of 2010 and it has changed my life. Girls and women with fistula are ostracized and cut off from society. At best they are existing rather than truly living. There hopes and dreams are lost. It is such an honor to raise funds for girls and women worldwide who are suffering from fistula so they can have access to free life-changing and hope-restoring surgery. Doing this along with the Fistula Foundation gives me the confidence that our donations will reach those in greatest need, that I will always be kept current about this issue through organization updates, and that through my efforts lives will be changed. The Fistula Foundation's passion is apparent in all they do and this organization makes serving these deserving girls and women pure joy! It is my hope that I can serve with the Fistula Foundation until fistula is eradicated!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my work with the Circle of Friends program. Our group (Circle of Hope) has received help and encouragement from the Fistula Foundation on numerous occasions that has enabled us to share the story of fistula sufferers with clarity and passion. This has resulted in numerous donations for life-changing and hope-restoring surgery and continuous hope that we have a strong and capable organization behind us as we serve these girls and women who have lost all hope.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
duplicate everyone so more could be done with the same passion, quality, fiscal responsibility and heart! This is one amazing organization!
Volunteer & Along with my Circle of Hope partner, we have raised funds to provide free surgeries for girls and women worldwide who are suffering from fistula. .
