Helena Ptochia Foundation


The Helena Ptochia Foundation is a non-profit, 501c3 organization dedicated to providing a means for Fistula sufferers to heal and re-enter their communities. The first goal of the Foundation is to build a hospital in Ghana, where women who are suffering with fistula can be cured, rehabilitated, and given back their lives. To date, the Helena Ptochia Foundation has raised and sent just under $68,000 to the fistula hospital in Mankessim, Ghana, founded by Sister Elizabeth M. Burns, RSM. The fistula hospital will become operational in phases, as funds become available, so time is of the essence! You might think this is an expensive solution, but it's not! In US dollars, a single fistula repair, including the necessary 10-14 day post-operative care period is $350-$400.
