Italy

area it new

The Franciscan Sisters of the Poor have been serving in Italy for over 60 years (since 1947). For over half a century, they have upheld and furthered the mission of caring for the poor and needy — those who have been neglected and ignored by greater society. Today, the Sisters have over 10 different programs in a multitude of areas and locations.
