Dr Catherine Hamlin
Raised in the Sydney suburb of Ryde, Catherine Hamlin (1924 – 2020) and her husband, Reg, were pioneering surgeons with an extraordinary legacy. They began the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia, which has become a major teaching institution for surgeons from all over the developing world. As well as being made a Companion of the Order of Australia, and being award the ANZAC Peace Prize and the coveted Gold Medal from the Royal College of Surgeons, Catherine was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.
In her book, Healing Lives reveals the untold tale of Mamitu Gashe, Dr Catherine Hamlin's protegee, and the inspiring almost 60-year friendship between the two women.
In 1962, three years after doctors Catherine and Reg Hamlin arrived in Ethiopia, an illiterate peasant girl sought their aid. Mamitu Gashe was close to death and horrifically injured during childbirth after an arranged marriage at the age of just fourteen to a man she'd never met in a remote mountain village.
The Hamlins' Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital saved her and in return, Mamitu dedicated her life to Catherine's mission. Under the iconic doctor's guidance, Mamitu went from mopping floors and comforting her fellow patients, to becoming one of the most acclaimed fistula surgeons in the world, despite never having had a day's schooling.
