Our work to eradicate obstetric fistula is only possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters. One way to make a meaningful contribution to the continuation of Dr Catherine Hamlin’s work and a lasting tribute to women across Ethiopia is through leaving a gift in your Will, also known as a bequest.
Jane, a long-term supporter of the Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation, chose to include a gift in her Will to ensure women suffering from fistula injuries can continue to receive life-changing treatment and support.
“I heard about the Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation about 20 years ago,” Jane explains. “I suffered from a painful gynecological condition myself years ago, which was cured by surgery. I was lucky to have access to doctors, surgeons and medical care. When I read about how these women in Ethiopia suffered with obstetric fistula, I could identify with their plight and wanted to assist them.”
Jane is ensuring her contribution towards ending fistula continues for generations to come by leaving a gift in her Will.
“I am donating monthly towards a student obtaining their Masters in Midwifery degree at the Hamlin College of Midwives. I intend to continue my support with a gift in my Will. I have spoken to my family about what I am doing and they are very supportive,” says Jane.
By naming Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation in your Will, you will be making an enduring contribution to the prevention and treatment of obstetric fistula in Ethiopia. Whether large or small, your gift will ensure sustainable funding for our life-changing work – and it is greatly appreciated. You will be making an enormous difference to Ethiopian women’s lives for generations to come.
Leaving a gift in your Will is a thoughtful way to continue the work of the Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation in ensuring Ethiopian women have access to quality maternal care. Like Catherine’s dream, your legacy can continue through the fight to eradicate fistula. Forever.
