What We Do

Healing Hands of Joy aims to make motherhood safer in Ethiopia and to eliminate preventable childbirth injures such as obstetric fistula by focusing on four program activities: The Safe Motherhood Ambassador Program, Community Engagement and Awareness, Monitoring and Evaluation, and Strategic Initiatives. Our ultimate goal is to improve maternal
health service utilization and to eradicate fistula from the hardest-to-reach regions in Ethiopia.
