Patients at the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital take part in many enriching activities while they recover from fistula surgery, with a typical stay lasting around three weeks.
A full time staff member runs craft activities for the patients to enjoy. This jewellery is made using the pages of magazines, cut to size and rolled to form brightly coloured paper beads.
Proceeds from the sale of this jewellery go directly to the patient who made it and also benefit the work of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia.
Take a moment to consider the journey of a fistula patient. She has gone through so much, but when she was making this paper bead jewellery in the grounds of the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital, there was hope for a brighter future. When you purchase this piece of her handiwork, you play an important part in her healing journey.
