Reporter Newspapers highlights 20 young students making a difference for a better community, and lists Sofia Broffman as an example of excellent service and support for maternal health and Fistula Foundation.
“Sofia Broffman began raising funds in 2014 for the Fistula Foundation, after learning more about the long-term effects of obstetric fistula, a birth injury that afflicts women who do not have access to maternal healthcare. Fistula occurs in the world’s most destitute countries and causes permanent incontinence. Fistula surgery is not glamorous, but it can save a young woman from a lifetime of shame. Sofia, the daughter of Neal Broffman and Elisa Gambino, has raised enough money for eight repair surgeries.”
