Will you help transform the life of another woman after suffering the shame and isolation of obstetric fistula?

Mulu, a Women's Empowerment Program graduate

“I stand freely and healed. I was not able to talk with people, didn’t go to church like others and suffering a lot. I am thankful to be healed.

Mulu, Women’s Empowerment Program trainee

Dr Catherine Hamlin’s Model of Care goes beyond surgery, restoring a woman’s self-worth and supporting her to live with dignity and independence.

The Women’s Empowerment Program is a three-month residency, giving former fistula patients the vocational skills to create a livelihood and, in many cases, start their own business – transforming their lives.

Help continue Catherine’s vision today.

With your support, women like Mulu can write the next chapter of their lives.
