Faith Sharing: Sr. Pauline Made Martini (Indonesia) does parish work in Francistown, Botswana, and conducts Bible faith-sharing in the nearby village of Shashemooke.

South Africa: In the Diocese of Tzaneen, our Sisters manage the ARV clinic. Sr. Marita Kurian, the site manager, balances the hectic schedule with time for fun and relaxation.

World AIDS Day: Theme: “Stop AIDS, Keep the Promise” is the theme for this national event. Attended by people from throughout Botswana, it provides opportunities for people to be conscientisised.
