I had the honor of attending Dr. Catherine Hamlin’s 90th birthday party this month, and what a celebration it was!
Dr. Hamlin’s many decades of work surrounding maternal health in the area of fistula repair and prevention has earned her a well deserved Nobel Peace Prize nomination this year so there were many reasons to celebrate her life.
She was joyous and curious during the whole event, and even came to an intimate dinner party that same night. She is an incredible inspiration to many!
Nicholas Kristof wrote an article about her, and Oprah made a generous donation to the hospital in her honor.
I am hoping to be able to devote more time to the organization she started. First up: a redesign of their website and assistance with a revamped communications plan.
And yes, relaying more stories regarding how Hamlin Fistula Hospital saves and improves the lives of rural Ethiopian women.
