May 23rd is International Day to End Obstetric Fistula. Many Australians have never heard of an obstetric fistula and with good reason – this condition has been virtually eradicated here. However, as you know, it’s an injury that thousands of women struggle with every day in other parts of the world, like Ethiopia.

Our goal is to raise global awareness about this debilitating and entirely preventable condition.

To do that, we need your help! One of the most powerful ways to raise awareness is through your own network of friends.

This year, the Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation has developed a re-usable Fairtrade cotton tote bag and a series of posters to mark International Day to End Obstetric Fistula.

By taking a picture with your tote bag and/or poster and posting these images to your social media – with the hashtags #EradicatingFistulaForever and #EndFistula – you’ll help spread the word in a far more effective way than we ever could!

Dr Catherine Hamlin has dedicated her life to eradicating fistula forever. Together we can stand with fistula patients and help make Catherine’s dream a reality.
