Sick

Come, blessed of my Father, receive the inheritance of the kingdom, prepared for you from the creation of the world. Because… I was sick and you visited me.

(Mt 25:34-36)

Healing with love

To restore broken health is to improve the quality of life, so, according to the different realities, our Sisters try to attend as best as possible to the physical and spiritual needs of the sick.

The first mission of the Daughters of Charity was to visit the poor and sick in their homes. In their recommendations to the Sisters who dedicated themselves to the service of the sick, St. Vincent and St. Louise advised them to be attentive to the small details that could be of comfort to them.

Using some of the most developed resources in medicine today, they strive to serve the sick with compassion, kindness and great respect, virtues so important to their Founders.

Since health care is a primary need for every person, it is a priority for us and we are working on it:

  • Service to HIV-positive people or people with AIDS
  • Hospitals and clinics
  • Health Centers
  • Hospital chaplaincy
  • Dispensaries
  • Fight against leprosy

The D.R.E.A.M. Project (Resource Enhancement against AIDS and Malnutrition) offers free comprehensive treatment to HIV-positive people in Africa, with the special aim of preventing the transmission of the disease from mothers to their unborn children. For more information click here.
