Hamlin 13-Day Southern Ethiopia 2025 | Ethiopia | Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation | Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation raises funds and awareness for the work of renowned Australian obstetrician Dr Catherine Hamlin and her team at the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital, its five regional hospitals and Hamlin College of Midwives. | Join this extraordinary adventure exploring the highlights of southern Ethiopia and immerse yourself in the work of pioneering Australian Dr Catherine Hamlin | This unique itinerary provides an insider's visit to the famous Hamlin Addis Ababa fistula hospital and the country that Dr Catherine Hamlin called home for more than half a century. We begin our journey in Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, with three days to explore the city and visit Hamlin's Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital, Desta Mender - Hamlin's Rehabilitation and Reintegration Centre and the Hamlin College of Midwives. We then fly south to Jinka, the gateway to the Omo Valley and once a crossroad for droves of people migrating through Ethiopia. Today, it is undoubtedly one of the most unique places on earth given the sheer diversity of tribal groups living in this remote area of the Great Rift Valley. This is an extraordinary opportunity to immerse in the fabric of some of these societies, including the Ari, Mursi, Konso and Karo tribes, each with their distinct culture. Continue to Yirgalem where you will visit Hamlin's regional fistula hospital and a Hamlin-supported midwifery college. This trip will not only have a profound effect on your life but also the lives of so many Ethiopian women. Note: The famous Great Ethiopian Run - Women First 5km is scheduled for Sunday 16th March 2025. Should you wish to participate, your return flight date will need to be extended. |
