Join us to ensure the health and dignity of mothers by treating and preventing terrible childbirth injuries.
We’ve restored the dignity of over 60,000 women.
We are dedicated to restoring the health and dignity of women who have survived the horrendous – and preventable – childbirth injury: obstetric fistula.
Founded in Ethiopia by pioneering Australian surgeons Catherine and Reg Hamlin, our work reflects a lifetime quest to provide world best treatment to the most marginalised women: those who have suffered an obstetric fistula, a devastating internal injury caused by obstructed childbirth.
I am one of the many fistula surgeons who have had the privilege of learning first-hand the art of fistula from Catherine Hamlin. I have never met a more selfless person, her concern for patients, staff and visiting surgeons has always been the foremost guiding principle in her lifeBrian Hancock MD FRCS FRCOG – Visiting obstetric fistula surgeon in East and West Africa
