End obstetric fistula

Posted by Ethiopiaid on Tuesday 27th August 2019

Shunned by her community, denied education and employment, forced to live alone in shame. For 17 years, this was Abrehet’s life.

Fistula is both preventable and curable. No woman should have to go through this. Yet each year 3,000 women like Abrehet will.

Today you can prevent this needless suffering.

With your donation today, you are helping to:

  • Transport a woman to the closest fistula hospital and pay for pre-operative care

  • Train a Safe Motherhood Ambassador to instruct pregnant rural women on safe birthing practices

  • Cover the cost of life-changing fistula surgery

Will you donate today and help put an end to the needless suffering that is fistula?




What Australians are saying about Ethiopiaid:

"This is one of the most worthwhile charities I’ve ever heard of. My heart goes out to these poor women and their bodies. It makes me so grateful for the medical care we receive here in Australia. My love, prayers and best wishes go to all." 

- Heather, Monbulk VIC


Your donation today will help women across Ethiopia have safer pregnancy and childbirth
