HAMLIN FISTULA ETHIOPIA (AUSTRALIA) LIMITED

Knit or crochet to support our work

Knitted shawl

PLEASE NOTE CHANGES AS OF JUNE 2014.

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia (Australia) is no longer sending hand knitted or crocheted blankets to Ethiopia for the patients. The hospital has a significant over-supply of patient shawls and the current supply is coming from the UK and New Zealand.

While the hospital has an over-supply of shawls, we have an under-supply of funding. We would love your support knitting and crocheting items for sale in our Sydney shop and online store to raise much-needed funds for the hospital and midwifery school. We have been thrilled with how popular knitted and crocheted items have been in our shop.

Alternatively, if you coordinate a group of crafters, consider selling your knitted and crocheted goods in your local area and making a donation to Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia (Australia). We need all the help we can get!

Please note that if you would prefer your knitted blankets were donated directly to the needy (rather than sold in our store to raise funds for Ethiopia), our friends at the Salvation Army would love your knitted blankets. You can drop them in to any Salvation Army Family Store or phone 13 7258 and to have your blankets collected.

If you would like to  knit or crochet for the Hamlin store, below is a list of patterns for those who prefer to work to a pattern  as well as general size guidelines for our more experienced crafters. Refer to the the list below to see the amount that certain retail items will raise for the patients in Ethiopia.

On behalf of the brave, beautiful patients and hardworking midwifery students of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, thank you for your continued generous support.
