Introducing the 60th Anniversary Inspiration Gift Pack

Looking for some inspiration? New in the Hamlin Shop: the 60th Anniversary Inspiration Gift Pack

2019 marks the 60th Anniversary of Dr Catherine and Reg Hamlin's arrival in Ethiopia. Their work combatting obstetric fistula has inspired generations. You can inspire your friends and family (and yourself!) with our 60th Anniversary Inspiration Gift Pack.

This 60th gift pack bundle of inspiration includes 'The Hospital By the River', 'Catherine's Gift', 'A Lifetime of Caring' Gift from the Heart and a Hamlin Shopping Tote Bag.

The new edition of 'The Hospital By the River' is an autobiography (written with John Little) which tells the story of this remarkable woman's life and work over the past six decades. 

'Catherine's Gift', written by John Little, follows some of the patients who have travelled to Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia in the hope of a cure for their fistula injuries. It is an emotional and inspiring insight into the lives of the women that Catherine has dedicated her life to caring for.


'A Lifetime of Caring' Gift from the Heart card is a unique way of showing your care. Proceeds from this card help the team at Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia to find and treat fistula sufferers. 


The Hamlin Shopping Tote Bag is a staple in the Hamlin supporter's life. It's an easy way to show your love and support for Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia.

Together, the 60th Anniversary Inspiration Gift Pack is the perfect way to show your Hamlin pride or to introduce a friend or loved one to the incredible work of Dr Catherine Hamlin.


Inspiring us for 60 years

In the 60 years since Catherine and Reg first arrived in Ethiopia, the Hamlin team has been responsible for treating over 60,000 women suffering with obstetric fistula.
