Review for The Fistula Foundation, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became a regular contributor to the Fistula Foundation in 2007, as a result of reading a column about it in the New York Times, by Nicholas Kristof. I could think of no treatable illness so unspeakably cruel to its victims, because of the social ostracism they received, and no treatment more sure to bring relief to those who could be reached. Everything I have learned since about the Foundation has strengthened my belief in it. I'm writing in the hope of encouraging others who value such effective and urgently needed care to come on board as donors. If their experience is like mine, they'll be gad they did.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reading about it.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be clueless, to tell the truth -- its leadership is admirable and its focus clear.

Role:  Donor & Signed on to make an automatic, monthly gift of cash.
