Why Religious Sisters?Stand in solidarity with African Sisters
Why Religious Sisters?
Religious women are key healthcare providers, educators, and counselors in sub-Saharan Africa. More than that, Sisters are key pastoral ministers in the communities where they serve, offering spiritual guidance and support.
Given our leadership position, Sisters can offer unique advantages in alleviating the stigma and suffering associated with HIV/AIDS.
Given the burden they carry and the culture of fear, women are more comfortable discussing their healthcare needs with other women. Sister to Sister gives women religious the tools to be empathetic listeners, especially on behalf of those who lack hope and a voice of their own. Our Sisters are highly regarded in sub-Saharan cultures for trust, empathy, and compassion.
