Allison Shigo's Joy Climb Fundraiser

Edit text

I am thrilled to take part in our upcoming Joy Climb. Climbing Kilimanjaro has been a personal goal for me since I flew over the mountain in 2008. I was mesmerized by the spectacular mountain, majestically standing solo rising up from the plains of Tanzania. The climb combines my two passions; hiking and advocating for women who have suffered from obstetric fistula.

I co-founded Healing Hands of Joy 6 years ago with the dream that in my lifetime women would no longer develop fistula and that mothers would deliver safely in Ethiopia. Our goal is to eliminate fistula in Ethiopia by 2020. It will be a challenging task, much like climbing and camping on Mt. Kilimanjaro for 7 days. I believe we can achieve both but I can’t do it alone.

I am so grateful for those friends and supporters who will join me on the climb and movement to end fistula by 2020 and empower Ethiopian women who have needlessly suffered from fistula.
