Review for Worldwide Fistula Fund Inc, Schaumburg, IL, USA
The Worldwide Fistula Fund is a great non-profit which seeks to help women who suffer from what can be defined as modern day leprosy - obstetric fistula. Obstetric fistula is a childbirth related injury most prevalent in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia resulting from prolonged, obstructed labor which causes a hole between the women’s vagina and rectum causing her to be incontinent, sometimes for years. WWF supports hospitals and physicians in Niger, Uganda and Ethiopia. The result, not only are women repaired physically – a miracle for them - but are repaired holistically through education and vocational training.
