This International Women’s Day, Support a Heroic All-Female Fistula Team in Afghanistan [Learn More]
Violence and instability continue to interfere with women’s rights and access to proper healthcare in Afghanistan— leaving women vulnerable to terrible childbirth injuries like obstetric fistula. What’s more, in Afghan culture, it’s widely considered improper for a woman to be treated by a male doctor. If there are no female doctors available, a woman with fistula may be forced to live in misery for the rest of her life.
Despite these daunting challenges, a team of all-female fistula surgeons is standing up to do the nearly impossible: deliver life-changing fistula repair surgeries to suffering women in Afghanistan. These doctors are a lifeline to their patients— women helping women. However, they can’t move forward without your help. Fistula Foundation has been proud to partner with these heroic female doctors for over a decade. Will you make a gift today to make sure that these incredible doctors can continue their important work?
