Fistula Foundation fundraiser planned

Fistula PosterThe UAlbany School of Public Health will host a public engagement event to raise awareness and support for efforts to combat obstetric fistulas among sub-Saharan African women.

It is scheduled for 5:30 to 8 p.m. Monday, April 20, at the school, located at the Health Sciences Campus on Columbia Turnpike in Rensselaer. The event is co-sponsored by the Danes Rotaract and Southern Rensselaer County Rotary clubs.

The event will include a silent auction to help raise funds for the Freedom From Fistula Foundation, a Rotary-supported health organization dedicated to helping women in sub-Saharan countries receive education and medical assistance to combat what is a common gynecological problem there.

SRC members are invited to donate items for the silent auction, and may contact President Phil Kellerman at a club meeting, via phone at 352-262-5421, or via e-mail at philkellerman77@gmail.com.
