Why Maree has left a gift in her Will

Long-term supporter and Hamlin regular giver, Maree is proud to leave a gift in her Will to the Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation.

“As a mum with a daughter living in a country where obstetric fistula is almost unheard of, the thought that a relatively small amount of money can make such a monumental difference to women’s lives – well, it’s a no-brainer.” – Maree

A gift in your Will can empower families like Leyat’s

The long, obstructed labour Leyat endured during the birth of her third child caused serious obstetric fistula injuries. She and her husband spent everything in search of a cure.

Today, Leyat is finally dry and her family now run their own successful business and are living comfortably in a new house.

“Emaye (Mother, Catherine Hamlin) gave me back my health which has become a source of wealth to my family.” – Leyat

Make the gift of your lifetime

Catherine devoted her life to women living with obstetric fistula, giving them love, hope and the opportunity to regain their lives.

Together, let’s finish what Catherine started – to ensure future generations of Ethiopian women live free from fistula.

  • $60,000 could fund standard fistula surgeries for 50 women
  • $110,000 could fund 4 midwifery scholarships for students at the Hamlin College of Midwives
  • $48,100 could provide 100 recovering fistula patients with counselling, handicraft skills, numeracy and literacy and health education skills training
