Giving Health and Hope in Ethiopia
Eradicating Obstetric FIstula
Women who birth at home, often in far-flung rural areas where hospitals are too far away or expensive to reach, are especially at risk of obstetric fistula - a hole that develops between the birth canal and bladder or rectum, caused by prolonged, obstructed labour. Donate here to help
FGM and Harmful Practices
Mayram went through agony when she was circumcised at just ten days old. This single, distructive act wrecked her tiny body. You can stop this happening to other girls. Please donate today and help end FGM in Ethiopia.
In Ethiopia, young girls are faced with the reality that menstruation is seen as a source of shame, meaning many girls are too afraid to go to school. Girls in rural Ethiopia need more support. Find out more

Here at Ethiopiaid Australia, we're all about enabling people to change their lives.
Ethiopiaid Australia is a not-for-profit charity raising funds for our trusted community partners in Ethiopia. Our approach is different - we form partnerships with grassroots organisations known for their expertise and ambition, who implement approved projects that address maternal health, FGM and women's empowerment, education and poverty reduction. We believe that truly sustainable change should be local, not imported. Ethiopiaid is here to give a voice to these incredible grassroots programs that otherwise would have gone unheard.
