Help Young Malawian Survivors of Obstetric Fistula on Their Journey to Health, Happiness, and Dignity!
This summer marks an important milestone for the National Council of Women of the United States, with the launch of a new online fundraising campaign in support of our New Life program.
Developed in conjunction with the Association of Malawian Midwives, the New Life program is designed to aid in the recovery and psychological healing of young obstetric fistula survivors. By addressing the post-operative needs of fistula patients, the New Life program is able to aid fistula survivors in escaping the social stigmatization associated with their condition and support the full reintegration of these young women into their homes and villages.
The New Life online fundraising campaign aims to raise $10,000, with funds going to support the creation and distribution of our New Life Kits, a post-operative care package consisting of 3-6 yards of clean dress fabric, footwear, clean undergarments, sanitary supplies, and a 30-day supply of toiletries.
Please take a moment to visit our campaign page and learn how you can help these young women on their journey to recovery. With your support, together we can give these young women a second chance at the life of health, happiness, and dignity they deserve!
