Dear Lorna

I work with an organisation called Maternity Africa , in Ethiopia we have 2
of our own hospitals one in Barhirdar and another in Mille in the Afar
Dr Andrew Browning, a world leading fistula surgeon is my CEO. Our
organisation works with Fistula Repair - surgeries done by Andrew and other
Drs he has trainined throughout Africa. And I, as a Midwife head up the
Fistula prevention side of our project.
You may like to look at our website to get more of
an idea of what we do.
