The support of dedicated community groups across the UK makes a huge difference to our work and the lives of women in need in Ethiopia.

Dedicated fundraisers and groups support Hamlin Fistula UK through hosting talks, coffee mornings, church events and many other events, to raise vital funds in their local community.

Over the years our volunteers and trustees have been delighted to visit many groups, such as Inner Wheel, Rotary and the Women’s Institute, to raise awareness about fistula in Ethiopia and our work to overcome the problem. Talks usually last around 30 minutes and include slides and video clips.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic we have paused in-person events, however we are as committed as ever to raising awareness of our work in Ethiopia and were excited to launch our first online talk for community groups in February.

Getting together on Zoom, we were delighted to meet with members of the Inner Wheel Club of Horwich (pictured). The club have been dedicated supporters of Hamlin Fistula UK through knitting colourful warm blankets for patients and we were delighted to have the opportunity to update the club on recent activity in Ethiopia and answer members’ questions.

A community group supports Hamlin

Volunteer speaker and Hamlin Fistula UK Chair Greg Morris gave a lively presentation and shared stories of patients who have had life changing fistula surgery, walking members through how their support makes a difference.

If you would like to find out more about booking an online talk for your community group, please get in touch by emailing info@hamlinfistulauk.org.

We’d love to hear from you!
