Join our Hamlin Regular Giver community

Join a community who are determined to eradicate fistula. Forever. A regular gift of just $2 a day will provide life-changing treatment to women in Ethiopia who have suffered devastating childbirth injuries. Joining our community of regular givers is one of the most effective ways to support the work that Dr Catherine Hamlin started.

Obstetric fistula injuries are one of the worst things that can happen to a woman. Without medical assistance, women can experience obstructed labour for days. In Ethiopia, this often results in the loss of a baby, and debilitating internal injuries which leave a woman incontinent. Ashamed, alone, and without medical treatment, these women become isolated from their families and communities. Your regular donations can help us find, heal, and empower these women.

Help find, heal, and empower women every day

“These women have suffered more than any woman should be called upon to endure. To meet only one is to be profoundly moved and calls forth the utmost compassion that the human heart is capable of feeling.” – Dr Catherine Hamlin

Just $2 a day will provide life-changing treatment to women in Ethiopia who have suffered this devastating childbirth injury. By making a small monthly gift, you will help continue the work started by Dr Catherine Hamlin over 60 years ago.
