By leaving a gift to Hamlin Fistula UK in your Will, you can leave a lasting legacy to the future of thousands of women in Ethiopia.
Legacy gifts to charities are a thoughtful way to leave a lasting tribute to a wonderful cause. A gift in your Will is an enduring contribution to the treatment and prevention of devastating childbirth injuries in Ethiopia.
Hamlin Fistula UK supporter Rebecca shared with us why she has remembered Hamlin in her Will
“I am a doctor and am only too aware of the misery and suffering borne by women with a fistula. The work done by Hamlin Fistula is so impressive, giving these women their lives and status back. I am also so impressed by the training of Ethiopian medics and the establishment of the midwifery school so the work will be continued and hopefully, with good midwifery, many of these catastrophic birth injuries can be prevented. In my Will I have left a bequest to Hamlin Fistula UK and would encourage others to do the same.”Rebecca, Hamlin Fistula UK supporter
Types of legacy
There are three types of gifts that can be left to individuals and organisations:
- A pecuniary gift, or cash gift for a specific sum of money.
- A residuary gift, a gift of all or part of what is left of your estate after all other taxes, debts and legacies have been distributed and you have taken care of your loved ones.
- A specific asset: property, shares, bonds or other items of value.
