Read the full interview with Medical Mission Sister Simone Herrmann who works as an emergency physician in a busy inner city and who is also member of the international MMS community of younger sisters in London
Celine Paramundayil, a Medical Mission Sister representative to the UN joined hundreds of people who gathered at the UN on the 19th of November to honor the International day for the elimination of violence against women and girls. Though the UN observed it on this day, Women's rights activists have observed 25 November as a day against gender-based violence since 1981 and in 2000 the UN declared it the International day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
As we honor the Veterans today, there are many people we wish to celebrate. Those who braved the difficult and trying moments for the security and well being of everyone. We honor those who have died and those still living, retired and those still serving. As Medical Mission Sisters, we remember and celebrate our many Veteran Sisters and Associates.
