HOW TO HELP

DONATE TO HAMLIN FISTULA ETHIOPIA

THANK YOU FOR CLICKING ON “HOW TO HELP”! Every Hamlin patient is treated free of charge thanks to the generous support of donors from all over the world, but particularly Australia. Our midwives are trained free of charge in a four year residential degree thanks to our financial sponsors. Please consider a regular donation to Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia (Australia). It assists enormously when we can account for a regular income to support the work of the hospital and college.

Donations over $2 are tax deductible in Australia through a partnership agreement (J850) with AusAID approved NGO, Global Development Group (ABN 57 102 400 993).

Ethiopiaid funds the entire operational costs of the Hamlin Fistula Centre at Metu. Direct Mail from Ethiopiad will include the Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia logo and the personal endorsement of Dr Hamlin. There are no other organisations in Australia authorised to run appeals on behalf of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia.
