Buluba, Uganda: Beatification of the Mother to the Lepers, Dr Wanda Błeńska

The Congregation for the Causes of Saints has given permission to start the process of beatification of the Polish doctor and missionary, Wanda Błeńska, also known as “the Mother to Lepers”, who spent 40 years in Uganda caring for lepers.

“What she saw in the lepers was not just the disease. She saw the entire human being, along with their fears and hopes, who deserved, apart from professional care, respect and tenderness. She was called the Mother to Lepers,” said Archbishop Stanisław Gądecki in 2019.
