Green-Pink Party (ONE)
Benefit
Friday, Feb 16, 6-8 PM

Women’s Center, Baker Center 403 (http://www.ohio.edu/center)
Ohio University, Athens, Ohio

Women from Latino Student Union, Advocates for Healthcare Reform (http://www.ohiou.edu/advhealth/), and Women’s Studies Feminist Undergraduate Network (WSFUN) (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/WSFUN/) have come together to fight obstetric fistula.

We invite you to OU’s new Women’s Center for a Green Pink Party. The Green Pink Project is a partnership between the Sierra Club (http://www.sierraclub.org/) and One by One (http://www.fightfistula.org/), an organization dedicated to fighting obstetric fistula.

Obstetric fistula, a devastating childbirth injury caused by unrelieved obstructed labor, affects women and girls living in poverty in the developing world. As a result of their injuries, fistula sufferers leak urine, and sometimes feces, causing others to shun them. Most are relegated to the edges of society, unable to board a bus or share a meal with others.

For those who can’t access treatment, their suffering and isolation is life-long. But fistula is both preventable and treatable. On average, fistula repair surgery costs a mere $300. Such treatment enables women to return to society and teach other women about obstetric fistula and the importance of family planning.

The funds raised during our Green-Pink Party will directly sponsor a surgery to treat fistula.

We will be showing video clips and having a discussion session.
Refreshments will be provided.
