In time, the work of the sisters reached Africa. In 1957 an African bishop requested that the sisters open a Home for Sick Children in Chad where the sisters worked to educate mothers and reduce the infant mortality rate.
A Sister of Bon Secours ministered in St Augustines University in Mwanza, Tanzania in South Africa, from 2006 to 2015, as lecturer in journalism and communications. She also served in the development office of the University.
As the twenty-first century progresses Sisters continue to respond to the needs of our time.
In April 2008, four Sisters of Bon Secours went to the Diocese of Tzaneen, Limpopo, South Africa.
Sisters are privileged to work with people living with HIV & AIDS, and with the local community, helping those most in need, promoting health and wellness and the dignity of each person.
