International Day to End Obstetric Fistula

The Gynaecological Awareness Information Network (GAIN Inc.) celebrated International Day to End Obstetric Fistula on 23rd May with a special viewing of the Emmy award-winning documentary ‘A Walk to Beautiful’ – where they raised close to $2,000! ✨ 💖

In a near-capacity theatre, the group followed the journeys of five fistula patients whose lives were transformed by Dr Catherine Hamlin and the team at Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia.

The proceeds from GAIN’s movie night could fund a standard fistula-repair operation for one woman, provide four women with pre-operative care AND stock a Hamlin-supported midwifery clinic for a full year. 🩺

Thank you GAIN for your advocacy and support of fistula patients! 💪
