~Our Recent Work

July 2019

Nurses with Purpose had the opportunity to attend the annual delegation with Mr. Mutombo and his team of experts. As the first nursing organization to be in attendance, we identified some areas in which NWP would be able to facilitate nursing support throughout the hospital with joint forces with DMF. 

Every year DMF's outreach focuses on a variety of services including, orthopedic surgery, breast cancer awareness and screening, and just recently cataract surgery.

~Dr. Helena Ndume, is a Namibian ophthalmologist who is internationally renowned for her humanitarian work. To date she has performed sight-restoration surgeries upon 35,000 Namibians. 

In July 2019, over the course of five days, Dr. Ndume along with her eye surgery team performed 178 cataract removal surgeries at the Biamba Marie Mutombo hospital.
