Desta Mender, which means Joy Village, is a place where long-term obstetric fistula patients can learn skills and gain independence so they can return to village life later on.
These beautiful wraps and scarves are hand crafted in the Desta Mender village by those long-term patients.
They are knitted from raw Ethiopian cotton, which is full of character, and each is supplied with a name of the patient who made it. We are grateful for the support that patients get, as well as Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia.
