Sister Therese Tindirugamu (“T.T.”) from Uganda has been our Sector Africa Coordinator for the past six years.  She first learned about Medical Mission Sisters when she completed a three-year training program in nursing at Virika Hospital in Fort Portal, Uganda.  In 1980 she entered our Community.  After making her First Vows in 1984, Sister T.T. studied midwifery and took advanced studies in religion, spiritual counseling and pastoral work.  Her first assignment was to Ghana, West Africa, where she spent three years working as a nurse at Holy Family Hospital, Techiman. For many years, Sister T.T. accompanied African women on their journeys toward becoming Medical Mission Sisters, first for our District East Africa, then for all of our Sector Africa.  She also served as the District Coordinator for East Africa. After serving two terms as District Coordinator of Medical Mission Sisters in East Africa, she coordinated justice and peace efforts for the Major Superiors of Religious Institutes in Uganda, and also gave retreats and on-going formation workshops throughout the country.  Sister T.T. now begins a new ministry in East Africa.
