“I could not control my urine and I was terrified. There are no words to explain my happiness to be cured”– Ayinalem, former fistula patient

Ayinalem is just one of more than 60,000 women who have regained their lives after the trauma of obstetric fistula – thanks to the support of people like you. 

But there are still an estimated 31,000 women living with untreated obstetric fistula injuries in Ethiopia – and new cases occur each year.

Our mission is to make these numbers ZERO.

Project Zero is Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia’s most ambitious program in decades. This 3-stage program will finally make Ethiopia obstetric fistula-free – step by step, woreda by woreda (district).

The Hamlin team will:

STEP 1: Identify and treat women with existing obstetric fistula injuries

STEP 2: Ensure all pregnant women have access to trained midwives to prevent fistula injuries

STEP 3: Bring about sustained change in each woreda (district) through education and awareness.
