Obstetric fistula leaves a million women needlessly incontinent, too often outcast— modern-day lepers. As seen on PBS News Hour.


Fistula is a childbirth injury largely eradicated in the developed world,
but still devastating women in the poorest countries.
It's treatable with life-transforming surgery.

We're on a mission to end the suffering.
We need your help.
We do one thing, and we do it well: treat obstetric fistula with cost-effective, restorative surgery.

Since 2009, we have funded fistula treatment in 31 countries.

We fund more surgeries for more women than any other organization, including the U.S. government, all because of generous people like you.


We achieve more, dollar for dollar, than any charity you’ll find.
But don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at our ratings from every industry watchdog group.
