Comboni Missionary Sisters

Charity description

Comboni Missionary Sisters logo
The primary aim of the Comboni Missionary Sisters is to tell the Good News of Jesus Christ to people who have not yet heard through promoting health-care, education and socio-economic development. Through these activities we learn how to express the Gospel message in terms that the people can grasp and be comfortable with, while their example of compassion and concern causes the message of Christ to be heard in a context of "love God and love your neighbour as yourself'.

Our missionaries have pioneered primary health-care, and particularly the provision of clean and safe drinking water, in many parts of the world. Many clinics, health-centres and hospitals have been built, and are maintained. Treatment is universally based on clinical need rather than on a patient's religious affiliation or ability to pay.
From the earliest beginnings of our work in modern-day Sudan and South Sudan, the Comboni Missionary Sisters have been actively engaged in providing education to the peoples we are privileged to serve, establishing and running a wide variety of educational establishments, from primary and secondary schools, to vocational and technical institutes, to teacher-training colleges and universities.
Workshops, courses and the like are an important feature of our ministry in the parish-setting, particularly in promoting the development of women, for as an old African proverb so aptly puts it: educate a woman and you educate the tribe.
