‘I Never Operate on a Patient without a Prayer’- Surgeon Sr Mary Ajiko, Soroti, Uganda

Sr. Mary Margaret Ajiko serves humanity outside the jurisdiction of the church as a surgeon at the Soroti Regional Referral Hospital, a government hospital in Soroti, a small town in eastern Uganda.

Ajiko, who has worked for a decade at the hospital, is dedicated to serving humanity through her profession. This has made her a pillar of medical service in regard to surgery, especially to newborns and infants.

“I am now a consultant surgeon, still doing all the general surgery but with more bias to children,” she told Global Sisters Report, adding that she gets referrals from across the country. “When I came here, I found many children were missing surgery, and there are many conditions in children. The congenital conditions are common, and not everybody else likes operating on children as young as 1 day.”
