How exciting to have the opportunity to both climb Mount Kilimanjaro AND help raise funds to fight a very preventable injury of childbirth in Ethiopa - obstetric fistula.  A fistula can occur when a women has experienced an extremely long and difficult labor with the baby not progressing through the birth canal normally with little if any medical intervention resulting in incontinence and often the loss of their child.  These women often find themselves pushed out of their families and communities at a time when they need this support the most.  These women simply do not have the medical care accessible to them that we take for granted.

While I am funding my own climb, I am asking you to consider making a contribution to the Joy Climb to support in helping these mothers and women who are struggling with fistulas and also hopefully begin to prevent the occurrence of obstetric fistula in Ethopia.
