UNMedical Mission Sisters have been involved in the United Nation for over 25 years.  In the book It Is Good for Us to Be Here: Catholic Religious Institutes As NGOs at the United Nations, stories and experiences from Catholic Communities, including Medical Mission Sisters, are shared.  NGOs of Institutes of Religious Life have been the most influential faith-based non-governmental organizations (NGOs) at the United Nations.  This collection of essays speaks to the moral and ethical consciousness they bring to the entire process of peace and development.  In this book, our current UN Representative, Sister Celine Paramundayil, shares, “We use every possible opportunity at the UN to raise the issues affecting people who live in poverty.”


Caption: “Involvement at the UN is an extension of the healing ministry of Medical Mission Sisters,” says Sister Celine. “The goal is to have a life of dignity for all human beings who are created in the image of God.”
