My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Worldwide Fistula Fund Inc, Schaumburg, IL, USA
I have served on the board of directors of this amazing organization for over six years, including as its chair and treasurer. Through its programs, it is building sustainability in Africa to lower the incidence and prevalence of obstetric fistulas. The Worldwide Fistula Fund has trained more doctors in expertly performing surgical repairs of the injury than any other single philanthropic organization. Its intervention is comprehensive, including educating women about prevention, providing physical therapy to address neurological damage, and training post-op patients in a vocational skill so they are integrated back to their community with a sense of value and restored dignity.
Wonderfully put, Nancy! Thank you for your continued dedication to women and girls with childbirth injuries!
