A Catholic charity serving our suffering and persecuted brothers and sisters around the world since 1947

our sisters in nigeria need your help

The Apostolic Vicariate of Bomadi is in the south of Nigeria.The majority of the population still follow traditional African religions, although many people are very open to the Good News of the Gospel, which is helping to liberate them from their fear of evil spirits and witchcraft. But the work of the Church is not easy, since this is a region of deep poverty,

The work of the religious Sisters in the region is bringing great blessings. They teach the children and help the poorest families in their great need.

As a result of the pandemic, the Sisters themselves have fallen on hard times, since many of them, who formerly taught in the schools, no longer receive any wages. This was previously the principal source of income for the community. They barely have enough for their own daily needs.

Can you help our Sisters in need today?
