My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Fistula Foundation, San Jose, CA, USA
I began to contribute to the Fistula Foundation in 2003, after I read an Op-Ed piece by Nicholas Kristof in the New York Times. The article moved me deeply. So often, we get so caught up in our own lives that we become oblivious to the suffering of others in other parts of the world. This article and the movie "A Walk to Beautiful" led me to help alleviate the suffering of women afflicted with fistulas. As a donor, I appreciate the ease with which I can contribute (monthly by a charge to my credit card) and look forward to the newsletters, which bring me up-to-date on the Foundation's activities. I also appreciate the fact that this organization is committed to maintaining a low overhead, so that as much money as possible can go for the Foundation's mission. I would highly recommend the Fistula Foundation to potential donors as an effective and efficient way to alleviate suffering of people who have no one else to advocate for them.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
reading the newsletters and the website published by the Fistula Foundation.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
be hard pressed to know what to recommend; they're close to perfect!
