Like the rest of the world, Ethiopia is being impacted by Coronavirus with its first case of COVID-19 confirmed on Friday.

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is taking all necessary measures to protect staff, patients and students using WHO guidelines. 

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia’s fistula treatment, rehabilitation and prevention activities continue and there is no plan to slow operations. Preparedness for response and awareness creation among staff and students has already started and Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia are continuing to monitor the situation closely.

All public visits to Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia have been suspended and until further notice, access to Hamlin facilities is now limited to Hamlin staff, patients and Hamlin College of Midwifery students.

Hamlin Fistula UK will continue our dedicated work to raise funds and awareness to protect women in Ethiopia from the devastation of obstetric fistula. We will be following all UK Government guidance and as such will not be holding any UK face to face community fundraising events or talks at this time.

If you need to reach us please email info@hamlinfistulauk.org

Thank you for your continued support and for being part of our community.
