The Medical Missionaries of Mary, (MMM) are asking the public to walk 400 steps, 4,000 steps or 4 km a day during Lent to raise awareness and resources for their work with some of the world's most vulnerable people.

People can join from anywhere in the world and so can their friends and family.

The MMMs are a global congregation of women religious who bring healing, healthcare and social justice to some of the worlds more vulnerable people. They currently work in 11 countries in the world.

The MMM were founded in 1937 by Irish woman, Mother Mary Martin and today they are involved in many aspects of helping people in difficult situations and addressing major issues like childbirth mortality rates, counter sex trafficking and providing essential surgeries like VVF.  They are also educating people about avoiding preventable diseases who would otherwise not be reached. 

“As we seek to share our healing charism with the world, we want to grow the audience for our message of hope.  In doing so, we are using digital media like emails and Whats App along with social media platforms to spread the word of our work and encourage people to participate.” Says Sr Sheila Campbell.  

“We may reach someone in need of prayer, or services, or we may reach someone who has resources and wants to contribute to our missions.  We are seeking to reach a new group of people who care about making a difference in the world.”

This is the first year the MMMs are doing this event and they are already having people sign up from around the world.  People can go directly to the link on the web page and sign up. People get involved by not only signing up to walk, but  by donating or by sharing the information with other people

“We hope this will be fun and is much more than a fundraiser. It is a way of getting people active and showing support for the healing charism at work in the world. Covid 19 has shown us how difficult life can be when we feel isolated and alone.” Added Sr Sheila.
