Regular givers help provide life-changing surgeries, which restore health and dignity to women who have suffered a fistula injury. Regular givers help train skilled Hamlin Midwives who work across Ethiopia to provide safe deliveries for expectant mothers and to prevent fistula injuries occurring. Regular givers help provide rehabilitation and reintegration programs to recovering fistula patients.

Meet Sam, regular giver and advocate for fistula patients

Meet Sam: midwife, maternal child health nurse, and passionate supporter of obstetric fistula patients.⁠ Sam became a regular giver as a way to support women in Ethiopia and help realise Catherine's dream of a fistula-free future. "I would love to see Ethiopian women readily able to access midwifery care and safe birth. I became a Hamlin regular giver because I wanted to be a part of this amazing work and to be able to contribute to seeing this dream come true," she says.

Sam's advice for people considering becoming a regular giver? "If you are thinking about giving monthly, I would say go ahead and do it!" she explains. "It’s so easy. I thought of a sum that achieved a particular goal and then arranged a direct debit. The biggest benefit for me is knowing that my support gives women their lives back, restoring their dignity and their place in society, giving them a chance to be a mother again and having a second chance at a life that had once felt lost to them."
