The Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital and the Hamlin College of Midwives provide treatment to the most destitute women in Ethopia. Many come to the hospital with "horrific injuries" suffered following a stillbirth. For more than 50 years, Dr. Catherine Hamlin has provided care for those who have suffered fistula and worked to insure that all women can have a safe childbirth and successful delivery.
The 2011 documentary Lighting a Candle shows the compassionate dedication of the hospital's medical team, Dr. Catherine Hamlin, and the long term benefits for rural Ethiopian woman because of their work.
