Mama Jude: An Australian Nurse's Extraordinary Other Life in Africa

Judy SteelMichael Sexton
An Australian nurse's extraordinary other life in Africa Despite plans to enjoy her retirement after working as a nurse for over three decades, Judy Steel found herself in Uganda, at the age of 58, providing medical aid to some of Africa's most disadvantaged people. Since 2000, she has returned every year for several months at a time, establishing a small hospital, health clinics for mothers and babies, a physiotherapy centre, literacy school, micro-loan bank and farming infrastructure. She has done this almost single-handedly, with the financial support of other Australian retirees and a Federal government grant, and has become known among the locals as 'Mama Jude'. This is the inspiring story of a dynamic and determined woman of a certain age making a powerful change to people's lives. It will appeal to all those readers who loved Dr Catherine Hamlin's A HOSPITAL BY THE RIVER.
