Ben and Erica’s Wedding Fundraiser

P2P – Ben Broadaway Wedding

Dear family and friends,

For our wedding, I’d like to encourage guests to consider donating to my favorite charity, Fistula Foundation, in lieu of sending us gifts.

I learned about obstetric fistula seven years ago through Peter Singer’s book The Life You Can Save. It was incredibly sad to learn about the debilitating nature of this condition. But it was greatly inspiring to learn that there is a highly successfully procedure for repairing fistula—and that there is a very effective organization that works aggressively to expand access to that procedure.

What Is Obstetric Fistula? 
Obstetric fistula is a devastating childbirth injury. It leaves a woman incontinent, humiliated, and—all too often—shunned by her community. Obstetric fistula ranks as one of humanity’s most disabling injuries, but it can be cured by a surgery that costs $619 on average.

Fistula Foundation provides free fistula repair surgery to women, along with surgeon training, in 31 countries across Africa and Asia. Since 2009, Fistula Foundation has provided more than 90,000 surgeries to women in need, and today it is pursuing a vision to bring the suffering caused by fistula to an end. Donate today to make a difference in these women’s lives!
