Over 6,600 women treated in 2017, because of you!
2017 was a year of remarkable growth and advancement, and I am energized by all the work you made possible across Africa and Asia. Together, we raised over $8.5 million to support ongoing work in the field, and I am thrilled to report that over 6,600 women were healed through Fistula Foundation support last year—all because of your kindness! We also have a strong bedrock in our endowment of nearly $6 million, thanks to the incredible generosity of the Wood family and the bequest of Paula Weil.
I speak for all of my colleagues here at Fistula Foundation when I say: your tremendous kindness is inspiring. Your gifts provide life-transforming surgeries, as well as the infrastructure to support them— from critical equipment, to training for specialized medical staff, to community outreach and fistula awareness campaigns. Because of your compassion, this vital work can continue in more than 20 countries in 2018.
As we look ahead to the new year, we are excited about all of the promising things to come. None of this work would have been possible without your support. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
