Celebrating A Life Extraordinary
15 April, 2021
The Catherine Hamlin Celebration Dinner
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Catherine Hamlin Celebration Dinner at Doltone House in Sydney on 18th March, 2021. It as an incredible evening and a wonderful celebration of Dr Catherine Hamlin, showcasing her six decades of care and dedication to the women of Ethiopia. Catherine was one of the world’s greatest humanitarians. No other woman, or man, has done as much to eradicate the preventable, crippling condition of obstetric fistula and give women back their lives.
Now it is up to us to continue Catherine Hamlin’s journey. Together, we will eradicate fistula once and for all. We continue to be inspired by you, our caring community of Hamlin supporters. This work is only possible thanks to you.

Thank You for Helping to Continue Catherine Hamlin’s Journey to Eradicate Fistula
Catherine’s journey was one of passion, determination and selflessness. She dedicated her life to the women of Ethiopia; working tirelessly for decades to improve maternal health care across the country and to give women love, hope and the opportunity to regain their lives. Thank you to everyone who recently gave to our Catherine Hamlin Anniversary Appeal. Collectively, you gave $250,000! An incredible achievement which can fund 357 life-changing fistula repair operations or a four-year Midwifery degree for 13 students at the Hamlin College of Midwives – helping to prevent fistula injuries in the first place. It is only because of you, our supporters, that Hamlin is moving closer to realising Catherine’s vision of eradicating fistula forever.
Many of our supporters wrote beautiful, touching messages for Hamlin patients. These messages are in the post and are on their way to Ethiopia!
