Navjyoti Social Center – Shapur, India
Sisters in Shapur, India support tribal women and youth in 50 surrounding villages. A flood in 2008 drastically impacted the livelihood of residents of this area. Sisters responded by providing flood relief services such as health camps, building houses, providing food and household articles with the help of Caritas and Nazareth Hospital. This year, the area flooded again and our Sisters waded through waters to provide necessary support to villagers whose homes were flooded.
