Journey with us this October.

We are very excited to offer the 2024 Ethiopian Tour to our valued supporters. This is a fantastic opportunity to personally see the lasting work of Drs Reg and Catherine Hamlin, and to explore the fascinating country that they so loved.

Eyayew Tours have organised an incredible 12-day tour encompassing the Hamlin Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa, Desta Mender, the Hamlin College of Midwives, Yirgalem Hamlin Fistula Hospital, two rural midwifery centres in the Sidama region, the Great Rift Valley and wildlife, and some of the most exotic and authentic tribes in Southern Ethiopia. 

To qualify to join us on the Tour, we ask that you have donated $6,000 (or more), to Hamlin Fistula NZ during the lifetime of your connection with us. This can come as a one off donation, or top-up prior to your booking if need be. 

If you are interested in joining us,
