Thank you to all of YOU who supported Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation’s second Raise2Restore Giving Day on Thursday 31st August.
We raised in excess of $625,000, thanks to a generous group of donors who matched your donations on the day.
Your incredible support will help provide life-changing fistula surgery to the backlog of women in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. During the civil war, Hamlin’s Mekele Fistula Hospital was closed or forced to provide care at a severely reduced rate.
The funds have enabled us to start purchasing the medical equipment and medication needed to open a second operating room. This means double the number of women can be treated and returned to their communities, restored.
From everyone at Team Hamlin, thank you for your support.
