The One by One Dinner at Benroya Hall

What is Fistula? You ask. This is a condition from obstructed labor that forces women to live with a horrible leaking condition, of urine.

Most women in Africa wish they had died of fistula. This is a very treatable condition.
That is what the One on One dinner celebrates. I attended this dinner because of a friend, Gail Pollack, [Micheal Dickter’s wife] is the Development Director. What an amazing organization doing such important work.

A disease that is so treatable with a simple surgery, change the lives of so many women. Giving life to women, who might otherwise be considered undesirable.

Life is such a gift.

Fight Fistula

About ruthoffen

Created by, Ruth Offen the founder/director of WaterWorks Gallery, a gallery opened in 1985 to showcase contemporary artists and jewellers that live and work in the Pacific Northwest. The gallery is on an San Juan Island in the Salish Sea.[ North Puget Sound] Pretty amazing place. While continuing to curate the gallery after 33 years, I'm decided to spend more time enjoying life by traveling, creating art with photography and dancing tango. Over many decades of amassing a personal art collection, now the process of downsizing is becoming a reality. How do we have more with less? Staying true to the motto, unencumbered by our possessions and not burdening our children with our stuff. This next process will take patience and courage.
