The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth celebrate Foundation Day in Nepal on April 18, marking over four decades of ministry in education, health services, social work, and disaster response.
It all began on April 18, 1979, when the first Sisters arrived in Kathmandu to begin their ministry. Since then, they have established a remarkable legacy in the country. When natural disaster struck in the form of a devastating earthquake in 2015, the Sisters were there to provide aid to those in need. When communities have faced poverty and injustice, the Sisters have been at the forefront of efforts to uplift and empower them. And through their efforts in education, countless Nepalese children have been given the opportunity to receive an education and pursue their dreams.
On April 18, we celebrate the Sisters’ presence and influence in Nepal.
