3 people who INSPIRE ME with their passion for helping people

15 February 2013

Dr. Catherine Hamlin AC

Catherine and her late husband, Dr. Reg Hamlin, travelled to Ethiopia in 1959 and their hearts were touched by the plight of many women after childbirth. Many were suffering from severe childbirth injuries, in particular, obstetric fistula. They founded the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital which is “committed to improving maternal health, reducing infant mortality and empowering women”.

Catherine is angelic in her grace and humility and has dedicated her life to helping these women. Well into her eighties she is still very active in the work of the hospital.

Jim Stynes OAM  (1966-2012)

Jim co-founded the Reach Foundation in 1994, an organisation dedicated to supporting young people’s dreams and aspirations.

“I truly believe that every person, especially young people, have unlimited potential and that we all have a unique ‘voice’ which wants to be heard.

Deep down, we just want to be ourselves, and when young people are given the opportunity to express their real selves they can achieve whatever they want, and have all the love, happiness and success they require.

Very often this process starts simply by someone believing in them.”
