Traditionally, Ethiopian girls get married and start bearing children very early, before their bodies have developed enough to sustain the burden of a baby. This makes the risk of stillbirth and birth-related injuries skyrocket. The condition, Obstetric Fistula, is the direct result of a prolonged, obstructed labor where, in most cases, the child’s life is ultimately lost and the mother sustains significant internal damage.

Through the work of our partnering staff in Ethiopia, women suffering from birth-related injuries are identified, given access to reconstructive surgery, empowered to provide for themselves through vocational training . . . and most importantly, taught the love of Jesus Christ. Yet the costs associated with providing Biblical curriculum, counseling, resources, and literature is a constant strain on this rehabilitation program.

Every $100 monthly gift will help provides a woman in need with the following: 

• Transportation from remote villages to the training center
• A safe place to stay during the rehabilitation process
• Four biblical training sessions per week (a total of 28 hours of instruction)
• Evangelism classes
• A personal audio Bible and radio
• Program literature and curriculum resources
• Professional counseling
