Senegal

 

The Sisters established their first community in Senegal in 1978, at the invitation of Bishop Adrien Theodor Saar. The Sisters quickly opened clinics and began serving the many medical needs of the community. Today, the Sisters have established educational programs such as a kindergarten and elementary school, as well as health clinics.
