The Little Way helped to establish the Little Way Sisters of St Therese in Myanmar (Burma).

Poor sanitation has a big impact on public health. With no toilet facilities at Wong in Ethiopia people use the streets or plastic bags.

Our work:  Leprosy Clinic - Sudan

The Comboni Sisters were expelled from South Kordofan in the Sudan for a time during the war years but have recently returned to help re-start schools and provide basic health care.  Many people cannot afford the price of medicine so the sisters run a small dispensary.  A number of leprosy sufferers receive a monthly ration of food and medicine, and children who are undernourished are fed.  Sister Dolores, who has been working in the Sudan since 1981, says: “The need here is overwhelming and we cannot help everybody.  Nevertheless, we try to reach as many people as possible.  They are very grateful for whatever we do, and we feel at home with them, sharing their joys and sufferings.  Thank you to the Little Way and its supporters, whose generosity assists us to carry out our daily activities.  Please pray for us and the people we serve and may God bless you all”.
