Nurse Maggie is a poignant documentary that looks at the extraordinary life of Australian nurse and ‘Order of Australia Medal’ recipient, Maggie Sister and the work she undertakes with India’s most reviled and outcast people. The documentary by Heath Film works on two levels. Primarily it delves into Maggie’s chequered past, examines what motivates her, and what drives her to do this confronting work. Secondly it takes a physical journey with Nurse Maggie through the most inaccessible and marginalised areas of India. The physical and emotional journeys are inextricably entwined. As the film unfolds it becomes clear that through helping others Nurse Maggie has been able to emotionally transform her own tumultuous life and discover a true sense of self-worth.
Maggie Nolan McMullen, OAM – Patron, Founder Member *RIP – 24th September, 2019. She was an inspirational woman who has devoted much of her life to helping the sick and poor in India. Maggie Sister was the founder Trustee and Patron of “New Hope India Relief Australia Inc and a Trustee of New Hope Rural Leprosy Trust India”. She lived and worked from the idyllic town of Broome Western Australia, but her life’s work took her far from that setting. The grandmother of three was known as Maggie Sister, a name given to her by the people with whom she worked in the Indian regions of Western Odisha and Andhra Pradesh.
