The Ludingtons

raised of $2,500 needed

I have had the opportunity to travel to Ethiopia and meet sufferers and survivors of obstetric fistula.  It is amazing that, in this century, sometimes the most dangerous thing that can happen to a woman is to become pregnant.  Many of the women that I met in Ethiopia suffered for days in obstructed labor, only to lose their baby, and become physically torn up delivering the deceased child.  Out of the depth of that suffering, came the rejection from friends and family due to the incontinence (urinary and/or fecal) that came from being injured during delivery.  Healing Hands of Joy seeks to take women who have been healed of fistula, and disperse them back into rural Africa to teach others about understanding the signs of labor, and encouraging them to walk for help to find someone to assist in the birth of a child...
