Leaving no one behind: Let us commit to ending fistula now!

For the past five years May 23rd has been observed as International Day to End Fistula, to raise awareness and mobilze support around the globe.  This year will mark the 5th year anniversay of UNFPA/Campagin to End Fistula with a theme, Leaving no one behind: Let us commit to ending fistula now! which "underscores the stark reality that failing to eliminate fistula jeopardizes the world’s chances of attaining many of these goals."

On the evening of May 23rd 6:30- 8:30 UNFPA/Campaign to End Fistula and Healing Hands of Joy will co-host, a special event at the UN HQ in NYC to mark this milestone.

Healing Hands of Joy has been the only organization in Ethiopia fully committed to empowering obstetric fistula survivors healing through rehabilitation and social reintegration. For the past 9 years Healing Hands of Joy has been empowering these women and equipping them to be agents of change within their community.

A short documentary that shows HHoJ's work will be screened, followed by a presentation by HHoJ Executive Director Allison Shigo. The floor will also be open for Q & A and further discussion.

You can watch the whole event live on our facebook page (Healing Hands of Joy). Tune in and follow this event on your phone, ipad or laptop.
