Since our earliest days, we have been supported by a movement of generous people around the globe, helping us to realize Drs Reg and Catherine Hamlin’s dream to eradicate obstetric fistula from Ethiopia. Forever.
Many of these people have hosted their own personal fundraisers, either as a one-off event or on a regular basis. Creating a Hamlin Fundraising Challenge doesn’t need to be arduous, and we are here to help you every step of the way.
In fact, the possibilities are endless: from bake sales and soccer barbeques, to walk-a-thons and wacky hair days at school, there are a myriad of ideas available.
Get the people around you involved by holding the event at your workplace, with your community sports group, at your children’s school, or around any activity that gives you an excuse to gather with friends and family. Because after all, every fundraiser should be FUN.
Finally, if you are pressed for time but still keen to help, keep the process really simple by asking people to donate to Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation in lieu of gifts for your birthday, Christmas, or other special occasion.
Please let us know if you are planning to hold a fundraising event by contacting Helen Wilson on [email protected].
And thank you so much! With the support of people like you, we can restore the health and dignity of more women in Ethiopia living with obstetric fistula.
