Support the Annual Fistula Fundraiser

Help fund the Harrar Hamlin Fistula Center, a mini-fistula hospital in the City of Harrar in Ethiopia. Ground breaking is expected in early 2007. Already, 3 of the 5 planned mini-fistula hospitals across Ethiopia are providing services to fistula victims. When completed, the Harrar Hamlin Fistula Center will be the fourth mini-hospital to be constructed under this initiative.
