Your support in action

Your support has freed Ayinalem from her fistula injury and a life of misery and solitude.

After months of hiding alone and in shame with her fistula injury, Ayinalem heard a Project Zero radio announcement urging her and other women with fistula to come to Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia for treatment.

“After I came to this hospital I got treated and cured. Thank you for taking care of me.” — Ayinalem

Ayinalem’s life was transformed by a simple fistula repair surgery at Hamlin’s Metu fistula hospital. Up to 31,000 Ethiopian women like Ayinalem still live with the pain and indignity of an untreated obstetric fistula injury – and up to 1,000 new cases occur each year.

Our mission is to make these numbers ZERO. With your support, we are confident it will be achieved.
