Help for the Formation of Religious Sisters in Peru
In many countries of Latin America there is no state help of any kind for the physically or mentally handicapped. Most families, already living in poverty, have little possibility of helping their own handicapped children in a manner appropriate to their needs. Thankfully, the congregation of the Servants of God‘s Plan (Siervas del Plan de Dios) have a special vocation for the care of the poorest and most needy.
The congregation has established schools for handicapped children and members also care for the elderly, sick and needy. They want every person to feel loved and accepted and for the handicapped especially to be able to discover and develop their own particular talents. And at the same time, they want to help transform the negative attitudes within society towards such handicapped people.
Today, the Sisters work not only in Latin America but also in Asia, Africa, Europe and the United States. Their young congregation has many vocations, and many of the young Sisters are qualified doctors, lawyers, teachers and nurses.
At present there are 31 new Sisters undergoing training in the Peruvian capital Lima. ACN is helping towards the cost of their formation with a contribution of $17,700.
