We aim to raise awareness of the work of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia and hope to raise over NZ$5000.
We are Ann Johnson and Anna Leggat and are both Women's Health Physiotherapists based in Christchurch, who have visited the Hamlin Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa.
We are both passionate about helping the hospital treat women who experience fistula and training the local staff to help prevent these injuries occurring.
Ann has travelled recently to Ethiopia to assist with training the local physiotherapists and helping them to write guidelines for post-natal care for women. We hope to raise awareness of obstetric fistula by raising much-needed funds to give women back their health and dignity.
By undertaking our own Barefoot Challenge walk, we hope to beat our efforts last year and raise over NZ$5000!
Please join us in making a difference! You can contact us on the email below if you would like to join the walk on Saturday 27th May 2023 or donate below. Thanks for your support!
