….. And much more! Thank you for being our partner in mission as we continue to be a healing presence all over the world.
Medical Mission Sisters are women full of passion…for wholeness, for justice, for life. Like our Foundress, Anna Dengel, M.D., “it eats us up” when individuals and communities are denied the resources and opportunities they need to live as human beings. It moves us to the core of our being when and where people are made poor, are oppressed or are overwhelmed with a sense of powerlessness.
In our broken, wounded world, Medical Mission Sisters are called to live as a healing presence. We try to bring about a world where all live in harmony and where no one is in want. We try to live as Jesus lived, with care and compassion for all.
A Community of dedicated women with over 500 Canonical members and 100 Associates, we share life and our own unique expertise with women, children and men on five continents today. We enter into their lives as partners, as peers, as friends. We work together with them to build one world, and be one world, where the gifts of all people, all cultures, all creation are affirmed and celebrated.
With a deep passion for justice, Sister Nympha Que joined MMS in 1968. Raised in Vigan City, Northern Philippines, she holds a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy and a master’s in psychology. She has worked in pharmacy at Holy Family Hospitals in Berekum and Techiman, Ghana.
In 1995 she was appointed as Pharmaceutical Services Manager of Christian Health Association of Malawi, assisting in the health development of Diocesan hospitals in Phalombe, Madisi and Mua, Malawi. In addition to actively participating in Health Action International (HAI), Sister Nympha also served as a member of the advisory committee of HAI Africa and Ecumenical Pharmaceutical Network (EPN) and represented MMS in World Health Assembly.
Since joining the Association of Major Religious Superiors of the Philippines Migrant Centre in 2012, Sister Nympha has seen the heartbreaking consequences of poverty and exploitation among migrant workers. She has witnessed the selflessness of mothers who sacrifice so much in hopes of giving their children a better life. She recalls the story of Gina Perez, an overseas Filipina worker, who was forced to continue working instead of going to the hospital after she fell from a roof, breaking her vertebrae. Now wheelchair bound, Gina adopted an 8-year-old girl with hydro-encephalitis.
“I was touched by Gina’s compassion and generosity to embrace this girl [with serious special needs]” Sister Nympha shares.
Today, in addition to her work with migrants, Sister Nympha is the part-time coordinator of the Oikocredit Philippines Support Association. Oikocredit is a worldwide cooperative and social investor.
