$650 provides one surgery.

$25 provides a Dignity Pack for a woman undergoing fistula surgery.
You can help a women suffering from obstetric fistula – a debilitating childbirth injury that leaves women incontinent and often shunned by society. Now almost eradicated in Canada, this injury still plagues women in remote African communities because they lack access to health care during delivery. Adolescent girls who give birth before their bodies are ready or women who experienced a prolonged or obstructed labour are at increased risk.
Help provide dignity and hope to a woman living with this debilitating condition.
