Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation
We are so pleased to announce that in January 2018, in honour of Dr Catherine Hamlin’s ongoing, inspirational work, we are updating our name to the Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation.
Dr Catherine Hamlin has had an extraordinary year. She was named NSW Senior Australian of the Year for 2018. She now progresses to the National Australia Day awards, announced on 25 January (the day after her 94th birthday). Earlier in 2017, a Sydney Harbour Ferry was named in her honour. She continues to receive accolades such as these in her usual humble, gentle way.
The update to our name honours Catherine, helps to ensure that her name is associated with her important life-restoring work and better reflects our role here in Australia to support her work.
