My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Fistula Foundation, San Jose, CA, USA
Several years ago, I saw a documentary on women in Africa whose lives were ruined as a result of difficulties they endured during childbirth. Each woman's life was described, as well as the damage that her body suffered and her subsequent rejection by the rest of the society, through no fault of her own. The stories of these women's lives were heartbreaking and I felt obligated to act and help them. I have been contributing monthly since May 2009 and I will forever donate what I can to continue to do so. The Fistula Foundation has been professional and forthcoming in any request I've had as a donor. This is a reputable organization that attempts to meet a dire need and I support its efforts with all my heart.
