This Christmas, join us in shining a light for children at Nazareth House Care Home

Nazareth House is in a poor area of South Africa, with low employment, acute poverty and high rates of HIV/AIDS. It provides a home for children who can’t stay with their families. Many have been orphaned or abandoned; some are learning to live with HIV/AIDS.

These children are amongst the lucky ones; placed in Nazareth House, where the Sisters of Nazareth can care for them. But because the house is in a poor and unstable area, power cuts are common. They can last for hours. The children can’t do their homework, read or play. And they’re afraid; anxious that life beyond the security gates might creep in when there is no light.

Without electricity, up to 40 children and babies are quite literally left in the dark.

A light in the dark

Sr Carolyne and a little girl

The Sisters of Nazareth’s mission has always been to help poor, abandoned or orphaned children. And that mission is still at the heart of their work today.

Sister Carolyne, originally from Kenya, knows that ‘We can’t replace the love of parents, but we embrace them and support them. We talk to them and tell them we love them.

‘I try to help them smile each day,’ she says.

Every child needs the comfort and support of a loving home. And the Sisters of Nazareth do all they can provide that. They make sure they have food to eat and clean clothes to wear. They care for them when they are sick, and help them with their homework.  And they share the love of God with them; they teach them that Jesus brought his very special gift of light to the world so that they could all feel loved and safe and happy.

A regular gift to Missio will help us reach more children, wherever they are and whatever the need. Please donate>>

Whatever the need

Missio works to provide whatever is needed, wherever the Church is new, young or poor. Sometimes that’s prayer and spiritual guidance. And sometimes it’s a motorbike for a priest or vaccinations for a medical centre.

The Sisters of Nazareth need a generator: their very own power supply so the fear that comes when the lights go out need never come again. And you can help us provide it.

A new generator costs just £32,800. Will you join us this Christmas in giving the Sisters and children of Nazareth House the special gift of light and electricity?
