We started with a mobile clinic in the most remote areas of Ifetedo parish with its more than 20 outstations. The Sisters go to each village once a week, and on one day, also hold clinic in Ifetedo itself for the people of the town. They help with referrals and provide good medicine. One boy who had been paralyzed for 16 years, was enabled to get surgery and can now walk with the help of callipers and crutches.
In 2008, it was seen that a school was most needed in Area 4, a village far in the bush. The sisters started a pre-school and primary class there, but in 2011, there were tribal fights and most families had to leave. So the school closed. We had built a borehole there with the help of 'Geschwister Afrikas', and that still supports some of the remaining people.
In 2012, the new convent building has been finished and blessed. In time we may be able to shift some of the formation program there.
In 2017 we could also open a widows' project in Ifetedo. Our sisters got a self-help-group of widows together, to support the women in this difficult phase of their lives. They form a group in the Catholic parish and get small credits to build up life-support for themselves - and often for grandchildren. Financially, the project is being supported by Missio Aachen.
