This year, we help several of our missions worldwide by funding wells, farm equipment, healthcare, and school nutrition.

Our sisters face enormous challenges to get drinking water. In the city of Kolwezi, a mining centre, water supply is a real problem. This is true for villages and towns throughout the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Argentina – Ecumenical transition home
Our sisters in Quilmes, Argentina have asked our help for Betania home, a transition centre for women and children fleeing domestic violence. It offers a safe dwelling when their lives are endangered due to violent circumstances. The home is a temporary refuge so they can breathe again and find an autonomous alternative way of life for themselves and their children.
