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

Thank you for looking to the needs of others, loving unconditionally, and encouraging us to do the same. Your legacy will live on, because you worked a lifetime to make it so. Thank you, you can rest now, safe in God’s hands.
