Happy Today. The hours of a midwife in Uganda 

Patricia lives in Kalongo, a small remote village in Acholi land, Northern Uganda. 

In the shadow of Mount Oret, which dominates the landscape of the village, Patricia is learning each day to accompany new mothers through the physical pain and the immense emotion of giving birth. 

"Together with woman" is the meaning of her chosen vocation to love and serve with joy, this is what it means to be a Midwife.
