DAUGHTERS OF CHARITY
OF ST. VINCENT DE PAUL
INTERNATIONAL PROJECT SERVICES
The Daughters of Charity came to Nigeria in 1963 and since 1974, have been engaged in various pastoral and social services in Eleme, Rivers State. These services include: Pastoral ministry, health care services, social services, educational services, and livelihood and development programs. Those who are supported represent some of the most poor, vulnerable, and marginalized persons within society, who need a hand up. The vehicle that is currently used for this ministry to those who are disabled, infirm, isolated, ill, and/or displaced is old and no longer reliable or safe for travels. It often breaks down and costs a lot of money to repair and maintain. Many times the old bus has broken down on the road leaving the Sisters and clients stranded and in distress. A new mini-bus will benefit persons who are poor, children, youngsters with disabilities & special needs, the sick, elderly, and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). At least 5,000 persons will benefit annually from these services.
