In support of the excellent work of Dr Catherine Hamlin and her team at The Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital and the Hamlin College of Midwives in Ethiopia, the goal of this fundraising event is to raise $18,000 to cover the costs of one lady's four year midwifery education provided by the Hamlin College of Midwives.

This is going to be in the form of a warm winter evening of East-African food, drinks and music on Thursday 6 August 2015 at the Jambo Bar & Cafe - 195 Barkly Street, Footscray (0455 551 852) from 5pm to 11pm. It's free entry. You'll be able to order your own meal and there'll be opportunities to donate at the entrance. There'll also be a raffle and an auction, plus good times. If you'd like to contribute to the raffle prizes, please contact the foundation. Share the love and bring a few of your friends and family along.
