We are an international congregation of women religious, founded by Mother Mary Martin in Nigeria, in 1937. Desiring to share Christ's healing love, we bring health services to people of different cultures where human needs are great.

MMMs are serving in 14 countries around the world, including our newest mission in the Republic of South Sudan. Sisters come from 19 countries and are trained in a variety of health-related professions. With Mary as our model, our special concern is the care of mother and child and the fostering of family life.

Raising awareness about fistula
The Global Sisters’ Report, a project of the US-based National Catholic Reporter, highlights the activities of women religious throughout the world. We have featured the work of MMMs for women affected by vesico-vaginal fistula in the form of an interview that appeared in the Report on 31 December 2014. You can read it by logging onto and clicking Ministry and Q & A. Please click Say Thanks at the bottom of the article. We plan for more to come!
