Annette Benning, Dr Catherine Hamlin AC, James Grainger

A new Documentary 'Lighting a Candle' is being screened at the Canberra Girls' Grammar School, Melbourne Ave, Deakin ACT , February 24th 2011 at 7.45pm. All Welcome. All proceeds from the screening go to the Hamlin Fistula Fund.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased on line at http://www.hamlinfistula.org.au/.
This lovely group of Ethiopian women are the first Midwifery graduates from the Hamlin College of Midwives. They were showered with many gifts from Australia to mark this special occasion, including the pendants I put together with embroideries worked by the fistula patients.
