This charity is truly amazing, and I am happy to be a monthly donor. I know where the money is going, and they keep us updated all of the time on all of the good works.
I've been glad to play a small part in supporting The Fistula Foundation over the past few years. They do wonderful, needed work in the under-developed world, and make a huge difference in the lives of so many women who otherwise would be abandoned and forgotten. Let's not forget them.

I've been donating to the Fistula Foundation for many years. It is amazing to know that merely by giving money so many lives can be rescued. I'm very grateful to have the chance to help.
I became aware of this charity some time ago now and was deeply moved by not only the plight of these poor women who for want of a basic operation would otherwise be reduced to a life of misery cast out by their family and friends and through no fault of their own. I was also deeply touched by the work of those dedicated surgeons who have made it their mission to save these women from such a miserable and lonely existence.
I am in straitened circumstances myself, otherwise, I would gladly donate more. I just hope what little I am able to donate makes a difference to all those involved in this worthy charity.
Donating to The Fistula Foundation makes me feel good - -and is one of the ways I celebrate Mother's Day
I have been a donor since I saw WALK TO BEAUTIFUL on PBS years ago. I have watched this organization grow over the years, increasing its assistance to women in many more places , with training of local doctors and nurses, education and clinics. Watching Fistula Foundation develop its ability to heal more women every time I receive the newsletter is astounding. The love and care is evident, while much needed medical procedures are offered to women suffering both physical and emotional distress. The fistula surgery saves lives, in that it restores women to be part of their community again. Women should never have to experience the shame and abandonment created by fistula. I know that donations are used wisely as the increase of outreach has been obvious. I am proud to say I am involved in helping women this way.
I came to the Fistula Foundation after reading Sara Pascoe's excellent book Animal. This was an issue about which I was only dimly aware and when I learned that thousands of women are still suffering from this horrific and humiliating complaint, and reading some of the stories on the Fistula Foundation website I was immediately moved to donate. I think they do a fantastic job!
