Here is an opportunity to do good. Fistula Foundation
Original post made by Alice Smith on Sep 8, 2011
This organization helps girls and women after they have been raped, brutalized or impregnated at 10 or older and suffer horrific damage to their organs. Organized by a local doctor from the Peninsula, this organization has now provided help for these women and girls in Chad, Ethiopia, Afghanistan and other African/Asian areas.
Fistula damage was enormous during the Civil War in the USA but mostly now in areas where competent medical help is far and few between.
