Sisters of Compassion is an order of Believers Church that cares for the neglected, poor and downtrodden.
The sisters are given months of training in health, hygiene and child psychology. Following in the footsteps of Mother Teresa, sisters lead a simple lifestyle and dedicate their life to serve others. Without any hesitation, they work among leperosy-affected people, slum dwellers and orphans. They clean the wounds of lepers, cut the fingernails of the street children, show compassion to the destitute and feed the hungry.
Sisters conduct health and hygiene awareness programs for slum dwellers. They teach them simple and basic hygiene habits like Handwashing. Sisters also distribute basic health and hygiene supplies and conduct literacy classes for non-school going children.
While lepers are considered as an outcaste in society, sisters go and visit their colonies with compassion. They care for their needs by cooking food for them, combing their hair, making them bath, washing their clothes and cleaning their houses. Sisters also clean and tie their wounds when others hesitate even to go near to them.
Sisters also work among the orphan children. They give them love and care and also teach them with moral values. Through their help, children grow up as healthy individuals with moral values and skills.
In many parts of India, women are still considered as cursed women if their husbands die. They don’t have any rights in society. Through the widow-care ministry, Sisters help such widows to have confidence in themselves and become self-supporting. They also conduct literacy classes for the widows and their children.
