It’s a new year so that can only mean one thing – the announcement of our new grant recipients! Number four on our list for 2019 is the wonderful @healinghandsofjoy HHOJ’s vision is to see obstetric fistula eliminated in Ethiopia by 2020 and to see fistula survivors empowered and successfully reintegrated to their communities. Their grant will provide 10 women who are currently recovering from fistula with training and access to micro-loans to become financially independent. Healing Hands of Joy will then support these women in their income generating activities and skills-training and reintegration as ‘Safe Motherhood Ambassadors.’ We are delighted to be working with Healing Hands of Joy and working towards making motherhood safer in Ethiopia.
