Restore. Empower. Equip.

Our goal is fistula-free and safe childbirth for every woman.

Join us to ensure the health and dignity of mothers by making quality maternity care and expert treatment for childbirth injuries accessible for every woman.

We’ve restored the dignity of over 60,000 women.

Founded in Ethiopia by pioneering Kiwi and Australian surgeons Reg and Catherine Hamlin, our work reflects a lifetime quest to provide world best treatment to the most marginalised women: those who have suffered an obstetric fistula.

We are dedicated to providing lasting change for women and girls by addressing the root causes of obstetric fistula. Through training and providing skilled birth attendants, we aim to break the cycle of unrelieved obstructed labour that causes obstetric fistula in the first place.

Congratulations to you… I believe this is God’s work on Earth, what you are doing.
