Support Christina, NZ Midwife walking ‘The Camino’ to raise funds for Hamlin Fistula.

Main image

Christina Campbell, a NZ Midwife is walking The Camino Trail, a 950 km journey, as a fundraiser to improve women’s health and access to midwifery care in Ethiopia.

Christina starts the trail on 5th May, 2019 (International day of the Midwife) from Saint Jean Pied De Port, at the foothills of the French Pyrenees, walking across Northern Spain to Finisterre- formerly known as ‘The End Of The World’, over 5-6 weeks.

Money raised will support Hamlin Fistula NZ (hamlinfistula.org.nz), a funding partner of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia. Hamlin Fistula trains Midwives in Ethiopia with a focus to reach remote rural women, & those deprived of care in pregnancy & childbirth. This lack of maternity care often results in poor outcomes, death, or debilitating birth injuries such as obstetric fistula (a condition involving faecal and/or urine incontinence) which consequently isolates women from society after childbirth. Hamlin also runs the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital, 5 outreach hospitals, the training of midwives & 60 Midwifery clinics across Ethiopia (hamlinfistula.org).

Christina has been a Midwife for 23 years, and would like to give back to those communities less fortunate than those in NZ. NZ women have access to what is esteemed as a ‘World Class’ maternity system, with the opportunity of free, individualised care from conception, during pregnancy, birth, & up to 6 weeks afterwards (midwife.org.nz ). However it is very important that this system with associated great outcomes for women & ‘the next generation’ in NZ is not eroded through lack of support & funding at a government level. Christina is passionate and very motivated to promote the importance of midwives in our communities, who provide a vital & essential service within the health sector.

Support Midwives= Support Women= Support Healthy Families/Communities

Christina is well prepared & motivated to ensure this fundraiser goes to plan.

We’ve done the talk.....it’s time to walk!

All funds and proceeds go to Hamlin Fistula NZ. Christina is self-funding her journey & time as her contribution to this great cause.

Aim is to raise $20,000 which will equip a remote midwifery centre in Ethiopia for 1 entire year.

Hamlin Fistula has restored the dignity of over 60,000 women damaged by childbirth. Obstetric Fistula is a devastating injury caused by obstructed labour that leaves a woman incontinent. In isolated, rural communities cut off from medical care, she becomes an outcast, existing on the fringes of society. Since 1974, Hamlin has provided surgical treatment for fistula, rehabilitative care and prevented fistula by training and deploying professional midwives to remote communities.

The Hamlin Model of Care is grounded in a fundamental respect for women who suffer this condition and a commitment to provide holistic and compassionate care.
