Sisters of Mercy are very supportive partners of Africa Direct. Sr. Mary Killeen, an Irish sister who has lived and worked in Kenya for over 30 years (began in 1985), was one of Africa Direct’s first partners. We have supported many initiatives run by the Sisters of Mercy including the building of schools such as Songa mBele and Nuu, computerising the Makadara Clinic, and donating equipment to the Mater Hospital. They have also been a great welcome for our volunteers in Kenya.

“On our own we can do little, but in collaboration we can accomplish wonders.” Sr Mary Killeen, 2010
