A Walk to Beautiful

Saturday 06 May

A Walk to Beautiful is an award-winning documentary about the lives of five Ethiopian women devastated by horrific childbirth injuries. Follow their heart-rending journey as they discover there is medical treatment available and set out on a walk to recovery. Admission is free. Donations to Hamlin Fistula welcome.

Hamlin Fistula NZ is a non-profit, registered NZ charity which provides free medical treatment with severe childbirth injuries in Ethiopia. These women come from lives of extreme poverty, and their lives have been devastated by horrific childbirth injuries (fistulas) that leave them incontinent and ostracised by their husbands and communities. Since 1975 Hamlin Fistula has treated over 45,000 women with surgery and rehabilitation. They have 6 hospitals, a rehabilitation centre, a midwives college and 32 midwifery clinics in Ethiopia.
