In December 2019 Hamlin Fistula UK was selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2019, the UK’s largest matched-funding campaign.

We are delighted to let our supporters know that thanks to your donations we beat our goal of funding fistula surgeries for 12 women in Southern Ethiopia – and have funded surgeries for 19 women!

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we raised a fantastic £9,511 online to treat fistula at Yirgalem Regional Fistula Hospital in Southern Ethiopia.

Supporters’ donations will have a significant impact on the lives of women who have suffered severe childbirth injuries, supporting them to regain health, confidence and livelihoods.

As Hamlin Fistula UK’s first ever digital appeal, this is such an exciting result and shows the impact and strength of our supporter community – thank you!

We also want to say a special thank you to our two match funders for the appeal – two charitable foundations whose matching funds helps us raise even more for women in Ethiopia.
