Here is an opportunity to do good. Fistula Foundation Issues Beyond Palo Alto, posted by Alice Smith, a resident of the Green Acres neighborhood, on Sep 8, 2011 at 12:20 pm
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.
