Loreto Rumbek in South Sudan is about to celebrate 10 years. Thank you for your support over those years. You are making a difference to the lives of so many in a war torn country. We pray that you will continue to donate to our school and clinic so that all in our care will look to the future with hope.
Thank you for your support
We are all used to running water and electricity in our homes. Most of us take education for granted.
Those living in South Sudan have no access to even the most basic domestic needs. The education situation there is quite literally, dire.
School conditions are appalling, food security is very precarious and yet Sr. Orla and her colleagues provide an oasis in the midst of real suffering and want.
Sr. Orla has been in Rumbek since 2006 and in all of that time has not received a salary for her work.
We ask you to help Sr. Orla and her staff to continue to educate the children and young women of Rumbek. Sr. Penina Omanya runs the Health Care Centre attached to the school. Women and children receive essential medical care and food on a daily basis.
All donations received will be processed through Beaufort House and will go directly to Loreto Rumbek
Thank you for your support which is greatly appreciated.
