66 Hamlin Midwifery Clinics across Ethiopia

A midwife for every woman

A midwife for every woman is a simple concept, and one that Dr Catherine Hamlin believes will make the biggest difference in eradicating fistula.

We’re thrilled to report that since December, an additional 18 Hamlin supported Midwifery Clinics have opened, taking the total to 66, all staffed by Hamlin midwives.

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia’s goal is to have 80 Hamlin clinics by next year, to ensure safe delivery for more women in remote, rural areas of Ethiopia.

Our 2018 Christmas Appeal focused on midwives and prevention. One of our goals was to fund the costs of stocking Hamlin’s Midwifery Clinics with medical supplies for a full year.

Australian supporters rallied and provided enough funds to stock 20 clinics! Through the generosity of our supporters, Hamlin midwives at those clinics have equipment and medication to treat women in need of maternal care.
