Fistula Foundation is dedicated to treating women suffering from obstetric fistula, a devastating childbirth injury that leaves a woman incontinent. Surgery is the only cure. Fistula Foundation provides more life-transforming fistula repair surgeries than any other organization in the world. We believe that no woman should endure a life of misery and isolation simply for trying to bring a child into the world. We are committed to accountability and transparency, and receive the highest ratings from every industry watchdog group.

Mission
Right now, women in the world’s poorest countries are suffering. They suffer because they are too poor to afford surgery that costs about $450 dollars. Our solution is simple. Donations to Fistula Foundation help restore these women’s lives. Think about what it means to you to help one woman. So many are still waiting. Restoring one body and spirit is a priceless, lifelong gift. Donate because you care. Because you want to help those less fortunate. Because you can’t imagine enduring such pain and suffering. Because motherhood and families are precious – things we all can appreciate. You’ll feel so good once you do. On her behalf, thank you.

Empowering women & girls Fund
Despite monumental leaps in gender equality in the past two decades, women and girls are still disproportionately affected by extreme poverty, while still battling institutionalized and societal sexism, violence, and sexual abuse. When you donate to effective women’s charities, you’re making the world a safer, healthier, and fairer place. Here is a hand-picked list of highly-rated[1] organizations working in women's health, education, and development. These organizations have grassroots ties and support various causes to empower women and girls in the community. This is by no measure a complete list of all the organizations working for causes affecting women, but merely a starting point, and can you find more resources here[2], [3], [4] and [5]. Let's fight for what's fair, no matter where women are. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [1] CharityNavigator ratings: all except kiva are rated 4 stars on charity navigator, while kiva is at 3 stars: Asha for Education: https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=7630 CAMFED (Campaign for Female Education): https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=11479 Kiva: https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=12978 Fistula Foundation: https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=8855 [2] https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=content.view&cpid=2133#group-195 [3] https://www.thebalancesmb.com/saving-the-world-with-charities-for-women-and-girls-4158742 [4] https://www.thelifeyoucansave.org/causes-to-support/women-charities/ [5] https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/534393/organizations-helping-women-around-world
