Medical Mission Sisters celebrate 40 years of healing presence in Peru in June, 2013. Since 1973, we have been privileged to live and serve among a wide variety of people in cities, towns and isolated villages. Among our many ministries in Peru have been: parish health clinic services, social work assistance, pre-school and after school education programs for children, pastoral work, care of persons affected by HIV/AIDS, skills training for women, university education and special services to children with disabilities. Blessings on all who have shared life with us these past four decades!
