I am raising funds to support my travel to Rwanda in 2020. I am working with the International Organization for Women and Development (IOWD) on a fistula mission, which works to treat women with childbirth injuries. I will be leaving on January 24 and returning Feb 3.
Supporting this mission means that I can use less of my own funds for airfare, hotel, and food while I am there. I am also planning to purchase supplies to help women that we cannot treat with surgery. These women are often shunned by their family and community, and they cannot work to support themselves.
I am so grateful for my family and friends for your support.
To learn more about IOWD, I invite you to watch this video
, filmed in 2018.
