P2P – Julia Ferguson Wedding
Dear family and friends,
For our wedding, I’ve decided to ask guests—in lieu of sending gifts—to consider donating to my favorite charity, Fistula Foundation.
Obstetric fistula is a devastating childbirth injury. It leaves a woman incontinent, humiliated, and—all too often—shunned by her community. In my travels around the globe, I saw deep poverty, and in most cases there was no solution in sight for those who suffer from that condition. But fistula is curable, through a surgery that is safe and highly effective. Fistula Foundation supports fistula treatment, along with training for surgeons and other services, in more than 20 countries across Africa and Asia. Across the Foundation’s global network of partners, the average cost of a fistula repair surgery is just $616. Few investments in human health can yield such a dramatic impact on a woman, her family, and her community.
I hope you will consider making a gift to Fistula Foundation to help us celebrate!
—Julia (and Chris)
