New Partner Announcement – Worldwide Fistula Fund

I am happy to announce our newest partner – Worldwide Fistula Fund. Founded in 1995, the Worldwide Fistula Fund (WFF) is a not-for-profit public charity that provides medical treatment for women suffering from obstetric fistula in sub-Saharan Africa. In February 2012, the WFF opened the Danja Fistula Center, a state-of-the-art fistula hospital in Niger to provide free obstetric fistula surgeries, prevention programming and aftercare for women afflicted by this condition.

International Museum of Women’s Motherhood Exhibit

The International Museum of Women launched a global motherhood online art exhibit called Motherhood Around the World this week.

There will be a total of nine motherhood galleries throughout the duration of the exhibit. The first gallery is Mama to Be. The robust exhibit also features stories and voices from mothers around the world, fiction stories from women writers, stories about women heroes who are advancing the rights of mothers and women, as well as insights from thought leaders. There is also a beautiful motherhood art gallery.

You can also get involved by signing their pledge in connection with Every Mother Counts to save mothers’ lives. You can also donate in order to help the Internation Museum of Women continue creating online exhibits like this.
