Review for Fistula Foundation, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I learned about Fistula Foundation from the book Half the Sky. The charities listed there ensure that the vast majority of the money we contribute actually goes to the women in need. In the case of the Fistula Foundation, the money funds delicate gynecological surgeries that repair ruptures that have left young mothers incontinent and shunned by their villages. The Fistula Foundation partners with other women's health NGO's in Africa and elsewhere in the developing world, and ensures increasing numbers of local doctors are recruited and trained for this kind of surgery.

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

Encourage them to spend less on producing their annual report.
