Dr Catherine Hamlin arrived in Ethiopia in 1959 and continued to live and work there for more than six decades.   With her husband, Reg, she pioneered surgery for obstetric fistula and established the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital.

John Little takes us inside the extraordinary world of Dr Catherine Hamlin following the fate of some of the women who have travelled to Dr Hamlin's hospitals in the hope of a cure for their fistula injuries. It shows us the day-to-day experiences of the staff and the tireless work of Catherine Hamlin herself.
