The Institution of the Good Samaritan Sisters is an institute of the diocesan right, founded by the Late Emmanuel Cardinal Kiwanuka Nsubuga, in 1978. Her Mother House and headquarters are located at Nalukolongo; a suburb in the Archdiocese of Kampala, Uganda. The generalate is situated at Kisubi along Kampala-Entebbe high way a route to Entebbe International Airport, about 15 miles (21 km) from Kampala City.
This Home for the disabled commonly known as Mapeera Bakateyamba’s Home Nalukolongo was aimed to assist the needy of society such as the blind, lame, aged, destitute among others. The enthusiasm to found such a Home devolved from the Late Cardinal’s visits to various homes in Europe offering similar services to the needy.
The Late Emmanuel Cardinal K. Nsubuga founded the Institute of the Good Samaritan Sisters of Nalukolongo in 1978. He was inspired by the ardent desire to attend to the needy and destitute children and the elderly he then founded the Mapeera Bakateyamba Home at Nalukolongo in the Archdiocese of Kampala (Uganda).
