Story

Thank-you for taking the time to visit this page! I am raising money in partnership with the UK trust for Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia. Please note that donations can be made on this page in any currency. It's ALL going to the Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia charity!

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is a truly incredible organisation founded and run by truly incredible people. Every day they restore dignity and wellbeing to women suffering from devastating birth injuries.

When I first learned about the work of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, I connected right away. But for the sheer luck of where I live - that could have been me. 

I had my babies in the UK - relatively complicated,  assisted births with severe postpartum hemorrhage. I had all the medical assistance I required. My babies and I 
survived and thrived.

Many women have access to no such assistance or medical care when they give birth. Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia gives women specialist surgical intervention to restore the most basic level of physical function and dignity that many of us are privileged to take for granted. It treats every woman for free. 

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia literally puts women back together again.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. You can donate via this page in any currency! Please also be assured that I will be entirely funding the trip to Ethiopia myself. Not one dollar, pound or euro of your donation is paying for me to get there!

Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
