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

Rating: 5 stars  

I was born to missionary parents in Ethiopia and so have a very soft spot for the Country and her people.
Here, in North America, I am an Obstetrical nurse and so know first hand of all the health care luxuries we take for granted. We have clean beds, sheets, food, medicine, 24 hour Anesthesia coverage for pain relief, 24 hour Obstetrical care, pads, showers, and a call bell to ask for help.

Compare this to an Ethiopian woman who walks for days, eyes downcast in humiliation , to seek medical help.

I give monthly because I do not want to disappoint her.
Others are doing the hands on work in Ethiopia but I know they need funds and that is my part.
I know many of the places where the clinics are being built around the country, and am impressed with the foresight to staff it with capable Ethiopians. I have seen the original Hospital in Addis.
All in all I am proud to be working with the Fistula Foundation.

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

Addis Ababa Ethiopia. Viewing their movie "A walk to Beautiful".

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

Somehow appeal to women more--for help.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & The nurses where I work were getting paid for a task and I convinced them to donate the funds to the Fistula Foundation. I also donate monthly.
