Nalongo

After a lifelong career as a government midwife, Mary "Nalongo" Kamya retired from her job and set up a clinic in her own home in the rural district of Lutengo, Uganda.


Nalongo (which means the mother of twins) now delivers babies in her rural community and works hard to educate the women she lives amongst through teaching them family planning and women's rights as a mission to empower them and shape the future of her village.


Nalongo has a dream to one day build a permanent clinic near her home as a way to better serve the women and children she cares for. A place that will be there to help for generations to come.

To learn more about Nalongo's dream, and to hear from the supervising doctor who oversees the district, please have a look at our second video "Nalongo's Dream" here:
