Dear Friends and Family, I'm a board member of a wonderful organization, One by One, a Seattle based organization committed to alleviating suffering caused by obstetric fistula.
I believe deeply in the work of this organization and feel inspired to help women and girls who are marginalized by this devastating childbirth injury that is so treatable.
On November 1st, One by One launched and online fundraising campaign to support our Fistula Surgery Fund. Every $550 we raise between November
“My family now respects me,” Immaculate says. Based on her tenacity and the garments she makes, her future in the industry is bright. When asked whether she wants to get married she says, “To talk of marriage, I don’t feel like getting married at this time. I would like first to achieve my goal, because without, I can’t make it.”
Between now and the end of the year, we plan to raise $150,000 to fund outreach, surgical treatment and residential reintegration for 235 women & girls living with obstetric fistula in rural areas of Uganda. With your help through this online campaign, we hope to raise the funds for at least 36 of these women by #GivingTuesday on November 28.
