During the 4th quarter of the 2013 school year, Spring Valley Call to Action and Spring Valley National Honor Society raised $1500 for the Fistula Foundation. These fundraisers were planned and conducted in conjunction with the school wide Spring Valley Footprints project. The Fistula Foundation works to end the suffering caused by the childbirth injury of obstetric fistula. This is the third year that Spring Valley students have adopted the Fistula Foundation as the recipient of a major fundraising campaign. The students know that their work will ensure that girls and young women in sub-Saharan Africa will receive badly needed medical care.
