In what has been a challenging year, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is delighted to be able to congratulate the Hamlin College of Midwives graduating class of 2020 newly qualified Hamlin Midwives.

Whilst there was no official graduation ceremony for students this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a socially distanced photo session took place to mark the moment, and the 25 new graduates are now getting ready to return to their home communities and begin new deployments as Midwives.

Like students around the world, students at the Hamlin College of Midwives have had their studies disrupted this year and have been adapting to the new normal of attending classes virtually by email, phone and social media outlets.

Despite this, the fourth year students worked hard to complete their final modules and graduate.

CEO of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, Tesfaye Mamo congratulated the new graduates:

“You are so unique in many aspects and your class will be remembered for graduating amid the COVID-19 pandemic. I really want to appreciate your dedication to complete your practical attachment and other requirements of your degree during this global crisis. You have shown your commitment to serve your communities by being tenacious in completing your studies during the outbreak.”

Tesfaye Mamo, CEO Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia

Since its founding, the Hamlin College of Midwives has now graduated 200 qualified midwives.
