Dr Catherine Hamlin was a wonderful caring person who lived a rich and fulfilled life doing what she loved – caring for those in need. Along with her husband Dr Reg Hamlin they made a huge difference. Very sad at her passing but such a wonderful legacy she has left behind.

I am so saddened today to learn that the world has lost such a wonderful person. I first met Dr Hamlin when I visited her hospital by the river in Addis Ababa. She was so welcoming and kind to us. It was the most inspiring moment of my life and taught me what real devotion, dedication and love for others is all about. I pray she rests peacefully now with her beloved Reg.

Catherine Hamlin was an amazing lady & just as amazing was her wonderful husband, Richard.
I’m totally blown away from reading this beautiful book .
I picked this book up at a local charity store for $1..
I feel so humble after reading this book.. I didn’t want the book to finish
The dedication administered by Catherine & Richard towards the fistula patients of Ethiopa has enriched my life .
Catherine’s enduring love for people will always stay in my memory .
Long may her dream & work continue for all women who face this horrifying adversity .
Thank you Catherine Hamlin .. RIP

As a practicing general surgeon in the United States, I was touched and humbled upon discovering how this extraordinary physician dedicated her life to helping others. She truly made this world a much better place with her special knowledge, unique compassion, and self-sacrifice. The world has lost one of its angels.

I am so saddened by the passing of Dr Catherine Hamlin. I have no words to express her dedication and humanity towards my fellow vulnerable Ethiopian women. To me she is an angel on earth and she will always remain my inspiration. It is my greatest hope her legacy continues to fulfil her dream of eradicating fistula.
Rest in peace
