  • Author's note: Catherine Hamlin, an Australian doctor, established
    A hospital in Ethiopia in 1974 with her late husband

    to treat women who had been damaged by the complications
    of childbirth. Because of their wretched injuries these women
    were commonly cut off from
    their families and communities,
    often permanently. So far the hospital has successfully performed
    fistula repair surgery
    on more than 34,000 women.
