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.

Earth Day 2016
Earth Day is celebrated on 22 April. The day chosen marks the anniversary of the beginning of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Beginning in the USA, it helped to bring protection of the environment onto the political agenda.
Earth Day became a global movement in 1990 and mobilised 200 million people in 141 countries. Today it brings attention to the importance of a clean environment and activities that can bring this about, including recycling, providing clean energy and planting trees. It is the largest secular observance in the world (History of Earth Day-Earth Day Network).
Let us work together to protect the beautiful gift of the Earth.
