I contacted The Fistula Foundation in 2010 to enquire about working together in Bangladesh with my organization- Hope Foundation for Women and Children of Bangladesh - to help women suffering from fistula. My experience when contacting the organization has been nothing short of extraordinary. The staff, especially the director, was welcoming, responsive and after explaining our experience and capability in Bangladesh, the Fistula Foundation welcomed our application to award a grant. In 12 years of existance this is the first time we received a grant wish such efficiency, as a result we were able to start working on the project without wasting any time. I am very impressed at the way The Fistula Foundation interacted with our organization. Having dealt with several donor organizations in the past, it is my experience that Fistula Foundation deals with grantees most respectfully, expeditiously and effectively. Also, the Foundation has been very quick and courteous about providing suggestions and guidance when needed. They also funded and sent a renowned Fistula surgeon to our hospital in Bangladesh from WAHA International, France to operate on 15 cases in just few months after the grant was awarded to our organization. I believe this partnership with The Fistula Foundation opened a new opportunity for us to serve many unfortunate women who are suffering from this dreaded condition and help them to see a new meaning of life, that is without shame and embarrasment, free of endliess pain and suffering, help these women to be finally happy. There is a tremendous need in Bangladesh and we aim to continue with a long partnership with The Fistula Foundation.
