"My dream is to eradicate obstetric fistula from Ethiopia. I won't achieve this in my lifetime, but you can in yours" Dr Catherine Hamlin AC - Co-founder, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia

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. Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia has a very clear goal: we’re working to eradicate the most horrific childbirth injury, obstetric fistula – and we won’t stop until this is done.

In rural Ethiopia, where women have little or no access to maternal healthcare, they will be in agonising labour for days if their birth is obstructed. If she survives, she will almost always lose her baby and suffer debilitating injuries that leave her incontinent, isolated and ashamed.

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is dedicated to restoring the health and dignity of these women who have survived horrendous – and preventable – childbirth injuries.

Founded over 50 years ago by doctors Catherine and Reg Hamlin, these two surgical pioneers remained in Ethiopia following their initial three-year posting to continue treating these marginalised women. Today, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is a healthcare network of over 550 Ethiopian staff servicing six hospitals, a rehabilitation centre, and the Hamlin College of Midwives – working to prevent the injury in the first place.

To date, over 50,000 women have had their health and dignity restored. Because of generous donors around the world, this life changing treatment is provided free of charge to the patients.

But there is still much more to be done.
