Helping People Improve their Lives
Wherever and whenever we feed the hungry, visit the sick, welcome the stranger, we are following Jesus’ example of active nonviolence. Wherever and whenever we advocate for justice and help to create a world where people have access to adequate food and healthcare, dignified employment and housing, we are following the Gospel invitation to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly before our God. Our healthcare initiatives are specific to the needs of the people in the areas where Columban missionaries work. From tuberculosis clinics in Pakistan to HIV/AIDS work in Myanmar (formerly Burma), Columban missionaries help people improve their lives through better healthcare.
