Barbara May Foundation

One woman dies in childbirth in Africa every two minutes. For each woman who dies, another 20 get lifelong injuries like fistulas. The Barbara May Foundation is a Christian charity raising funds in Australia to allow doctors like Andrew Browning to treat and prevent obstetric fistula in Africa and other nations. Obstetric fistula is caused when women can’t get to a hospital to have their baby. In some areas where we work around 90% deliver at home with no access to health care, and one in 12 women die from pregnancy in their lifetime.

Our medical director, missionary Dr Andrew Browning, has operated, free of charge, on more than 7000 women with fistula during his 17 years in Africa.
