This year has been one of significant global developments. One thing that remains certain and consistent is the complete dedication of the staff, doctors and nurses at Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia. We exist to ensure that the team in Ethiopia can continue its mission of eradicating obstetric fistula from Ethiopia and ensuring the health and dignity of mothers from preventable and treatable childbirth injuries.
This is what drives us every day, and this is what drives our team in Ethiopia. What you support as our donors is a dream which can be fulfilled. Catherine Hamlin’s dream is to eradicate obstetric fistula in Ethiopia so that every woman can be free from these atrocious internal injuries and for all women to have access to quality maternal healthcare.
We are deeply grateful for your generous support. Most importantly, so too are the women whose lives are changed because of one simple surgery, one Hamlin midwife, or one dedicated physiotherapist.
The impact on these women should never be underestimated.
Thank you for all you have done to support us and we wish you a very happy and merry Christmas, filled with loved ones, friends and family, and lots of laughter!
With our very best wishes,
Julie White, Chair, and the Board of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia (Australia).
