Soulworks Essential Therapies donates 5% of its proceeds from energy healing treatments to Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia. Catherine Hamlin founder of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is a pioneer in the treatment of obstetric fistulas. Her dream is to end obstetric fistula in Ethiopia.
The physical consequences of a childbirth injury are devastating and debilitating. The hole between the birth canal and the bladder or rectum leaves survivors leaking urine or faeces, and sometimes both – through their vagina. But if that wasn’t horrific enough, it is the social isolation, stigma and loss of dignity that leaves the most damaging scars.

In July 2017, Carmela together with AlyBlue Media, publisher of the anthology series Real Life Diaries, released the book titled "Living with Endometriosis." The anthology raises awareness of Endometriosis, by taking readers inside the lives of 15 women living with different stages of the disease. Each woman shares her struggles, and how she copes with chronic pain, misdiagnoses, infertility, and more. Carmela shares her twenty year journey and how she overcame the mental and physical struggle of daily chronic pain.
Carmela also volunteers her time talking to women's groups about endometriosis to raise awareness.
