2020 – A Year in Review
We believe in a world without maternal death, birth injuries or obstetric fistula. Find out how, with your support, we worked towards that vision in 2020 by taking a moment to read our 2020 Annual Review.
Globally, 2020 was an immensely difficult year, as we all coped with the impact of the pandemic and, for the Hamlin team, we mourned the loss of our founder Dr Catherine Hamlin who passed away peacefully in March at the age of 96.
We are so proud of the results achieved by our dedicated team in Ethiopia this year, honouring Catherine’s legacy, despite the challenges they have faced.
Work in Ethiopia has continued in earnest and whilst there was a slowing in the number of patients arriving at our hospitals and clinics because of the pandemic, in recent months these numbers have picked up again.
Hamlin’s brilliant team in Ethiopia have been ready and willing to treat and support women with obstetric fistula and other birth injuries, restoring their health and dignity through surgery, rehabilitation and loving care.
Our supporters, have been crucial in ensuring Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia has continued to thrive during this time. Thank you for being by our side and enabling us to continue supporting many thousands of women in Ethiopia to live happier and healthier lives.
