~ Sister Budari – “I want to make sure mothers and their babies are happy and healthy.” ~

Nurse Sister Budari joined the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Department of Port Moresby General Hospital in 1989 after graduating from Rabaul School of Nursing, in East New Britain province. She realized her passion for taking care of those in need while looking after her dad at home who has asthma; this then inspired her to take up nursing as a profession.
She loves taking care of mothers and their babies in the post natal ward at PMGH and has noticed major improvements in the hospital. “ward 11 feels like a second home”. Sr. Budari has worked as a nurse for 27 years and has specialized in midwifery for 21 years. “I love being a midwife because I care for both mothers and babies. Women are key to life, If there are no women, there are no babies, no human beings, no population and there is no country”.
