SAN JOSE (KGO) -- A South Bay charity is about to receive a big donation, thanks to comedian Louis C.K. and Jeopardy.

Louis won $50,000 on celebrity Jeopardy! Wednesday on ABC7. Power players have been competing all week for the charity of their choice. Louis is giving his winnings to a San Jose based foundation that helps underserved women around the world.

"Ok, so there's these women in like Africa and Asia who give birth and they get injury called the Fistula, which means they are incontinent and usually it means they become shunned and nobody will hire them or educate them or marry them, it's a terrible thing," said Louis C.K.

The Fistula Foundation makes sure they get the operation they need to help them get back on their feet.
