Highest Medical Award
Sr. Maura Lynch is a Medical Missionary of Mary and Senior Surgeon at Kitovu Hospital in Masaka in Uganda. She spent the first twenty years of her missionary life in Southern Angola where most of the time the country was at war, and for the past twenty years she has been in Uganda. Last year she was the first woman to receive the prestigious ‘Fellow Award’ from the Association of Surgeons of Uganda in recognition of her services to the development of surgery there. Eileen Good met up with her in Dublin recently on the night of yet another remarkable achievement.
