Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic our administrative team are working from home and not able to access our UK office as frequently as before.

For supporters that have blankets that are already knitted, please do send these to us at our office address, thank you.

However, unfortunately due to limited office presence we are asking our community of volunteer knitters to not start knitting any new items at this time.

When the situation changes we will keep supporters updated.

Thankfully our hospitals in Ethiopia all have a good supply of blankets for the time being, thanks to your past support.

If you would like to continue to support in this time in other ways, we are working hard to raise much-needed funds for Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, and would greatly welcome any online community fundraising activities that volunteers may be considering. Please contact us directly on 0121 559 3999 or at info@hamlinfistulauk.org if you would like to discuss a community fundraising idea.

Thank you for your understanding at this crucial time and much valued support!

Best wishes from Jean and the team at HFUK.
