The Hamlin Shop


Bird & Bird and Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation warmly welcome all friends and connections from the ACOMMS Awards 2022 to the Hamlin Shop! We’re so glad you’re here.

Your fair trade gift from comes from this shop, and is carefully hand-crafted from telephone and electrical wires, over the course of many hours. It was made by one of Hamlin’s community partners based in South Africa, in the subsistence farming area of KwaZulu-Natal province. Like you, each is unique.


You can find many more such hand-crafted, fair trade gifts in this store.

Your support of the Hamlin Shop helps support artisans and craftspeople from across Africa, and genuinely helps Ethiopian women recover from traumatic childbirth injuries, continuing the decades of wonderful work of the amazing Australian doctors, Catherine and Reg Hamlin.
