I'm to support this charity as a practical way of making a life-changing difference to women in a situation I would never be in thanks to having been born in a country where fully funded public health services are the norm.
The Fistula Foundation has been a good steward . They have been consistent with ensuring the women in need (who are many) receive the most value for the amount of donations received. Money is not wasted in administration fees. I sleep well at night knowing my meager donation will make a difference.
Wonderful staff and excellent communication with donors. I appreciate the transparency and integrity with which this charity is run.
I have supported this organization for some years now. I think the work they do is phenomenal. I am proud to be involved with what they do, even if it is in a small way. I like the fact that any money I give is used for their work with women and not spent on administration. I hope they continue to flourish and are supported well, especially by women like myself who have been lucky enough to have healthy childbirths, healthy babies and healthy grandchildren.
I have donated to The Fistula Foundation over the years, and they have done a remarkable job of sharing with me where the dollars go, how it is used, and the how it changes the lives of the women they help. It is pleasure to know that my money goes directly to improving the quality of life for women in need of obstetric care.
Tragically fistulas leave women, often young girls, in a state of constant foul odor. The Fistula Society provides operations that allow outcast women to be welcomed back to their families and communities.
