Visions from Ethiopia

One of the nicest stalls I came across at the Craft Fair recently was the small stall which was accepting clean new knickers to send off to Ethiopia to the Fistula Hospital for the women after their fistula operations. It was also a fundraising opportunity for the Dr Catherine Hamlin Foundation and I bought this fantastic tea towel which has drawings from all the patients in the Hospital and some lovely cards with women with the wraps that have been knitted for them. It was a truly heartwarming experience to see the wonderful work done by Dr Catherine Hamlin. If you haven't read them - read "A Hospital by the River" and "Catherine's Gift"- they will change your world!
