Review for Worldwide Fistula Fund Inc, Schaumburg, IL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have been interested in the problem of childbirth injuries and fistula since the first time I heard Lewis Wall speak in 2002. Lewis founded this organization with another dedicated fistula surgeon, Steve Arrowsmith. They carried the load for many years but the organization has now transitioned into a modern public non-profit.

I have had a variety of experiences living and working in Africa over the past 6 years. Obstetric fistula is a complicated medical, social, and political problem. WFF understands this and strives to use donations responsibly to maximize the impact. I visited the facility in Danja last spring and it is a model--clean, efficient and effective without unnecessary ornamentation. We endeavor to make sure that all WFF activities will do the same.
