Paperback
^Since 1959 Dr. Catherine Hamlin has lived and worked in Ethiopia. With her husband, Reg, she pioneered surgery for the condition called "fistula"--an injury incurred during obstructed labor, resulting in uncontrollable incontinence. Fistula sufferers are outcasts from society. The techniques the Hamlins developed have allowed tens of thousands to return to normal life. ^"Catherine's Gift" takes us inside Dr. Hamlin's remarkable world, following the fate of some of the women who come to her in the hope of a cure. It shows us the day-to-day experiences of her incredible staff, many of them former patients, and the tireless work of Dr. Hamlin herself. ^Catherine Hamlin is still operating, though now in her late eighties. For women without hope Catherine's gift is, truly, the gift of new life.
