I was saddened to hear of the passing of Dr Catherine Hamlin a few days ago. She was a living saint who worked tirelessly and selflessly to help women with Obstetric Fistula. (A devastating condition that in most cases occurs when women have an obstructed labour and have no access to proper medical care) She dedicated her life to eradicating it in Ethiopia. I was lucky enough to celebrate with her on her 71st birthday while on a field trip in Ethiopia thanks to @virginunite and I’ll never forget how inspired I was by her and her commitment to these women. We will miss you Catherine. Rest in Peace. Thank you for all you have done!!! We will all do our part to carry on your mission. ❤️🙏🏼 #Repost @hamlinfistula_uk with @get_repost ・・・ In loving memory, Dr Catherine Hamlin AC, 1924 – 2020 It is with great sadness that we are writing this post. Dr Catherine Hamlin, co-founder of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, passed away peacefully at her home on the grounds of the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia on Wednesday March 18th, 2020. She was 96 years old. It is a very sad time for those who knew Catherine – her family, her patients, her colleagues and her thousands of supporters around the world. In this time of sorrow, we reflect upon her life and celebrate it for what it was: a gift to some of the world’s most vulnerable women. Catherine was always grateful to those who supported her dream of eradicating obstetric fistula in Ethiopia. Thank you for being part of our community. Without you, Catherine’s incredible life’s work would not have been possible.
