NewsPray With Us

The three little children in the picture above had malnutrition and were cared for at one of the sisters’ Nutrition Centres in Africa. They have now all got better, due to the intervention of the sisters.  The sisters say this is because of the support they get from people who give so generously, for example through our Advent appeal.  These children represent an increasing number of children whom the sisters are trying to help.  Treating young children with malnutrition is just one of the projects our sisters are involved in, helping the poorest of the poor, and which this appeal will support.


You can read more about the life and work of our African sisters in our latest Africa Newsletter 2021.
