Honor to the memory of Dr Catherine Hamlin and may somebody Rock-A-her soul forever in the bosom of Abraham🙏
Hundred of thousands of young – FAR TOO YOUNG – girls in the worlds poorest countries owe their regained health and happiness to her.
Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation has one purpose and one purpose only: eradicating fistula. Forever.
Cathrine Hamlin deserves the Nobel Peace Prize or the Noble Prize in Medicine OR BOTH for her unbelievable and unselfish work to fight obstetric fistula.
I was awestruck to meet with her in Addis Ababa at “The Hospital by the river” back in 2013.
At the age of 90 she was still operating obstetric fistula on weekly basis in this hospital which symbolized the very manifestation of her life’s meaning.
Read the fantastic and emotionally moving story of her life and her mission: “The Hospital by the river”
Join the efforts to pay due tribute to her:
