'A Walk to Beautiful' to be shown May 14 at Pine River church

Posted: May 7, 2013 - 5:32pm

First Lutheran Church women in Pine River will show “A Walk to Beautiful” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 14, in the church fellowship hall.

Dessert will follow the program.

RSVP to First Lutheran Church at 218-587-2316 or 1stluth@uslink.net.

This public broadcasting video tells the story of loneliness and shame for thousands of Ethiopian women. These women who are rejected by their husbands and ostracized by their communities leave their homes in search of treatment of obstetric fistula. Walking for hours to the nearest road, then searching for public transportation, they finally reach Western and African doctors who treat them with respect and find they are surrounded by women like themselves.  

This event is open to all women and those who attend are encouraged to bring a friend.
