We believe in a world where all women are able to deliver their babies safely and where childbirth injuries are a thing of the past.
Restoring dignity with
treatment and rehabilitation
We exist to to ensure the health and dignity of women who have survived horrendous – and preventable – childbirth injuries.
Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia takes a holistic approach. One that seeks to repair, mend and heal all the scars – emotional and physical that come with a childbirth injury.
Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is relentless in ensuring childbirth injuries are prevented through an active program of recruiting the brightest students from rural areas, putting them through rigorous training as midwives, and then deploying them back to their villages where their skills are needed.
This is a cornerstone foundation of the Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia program – ensuring that women in Ethiopia have access to qualified midwives so they no longer suffer for days on end with an obstructed labour.
