Sister Consilia is a nun from Zimbabwe who lives and works in Gokwe, Zimbabwe.

The health centre she works in helps some of the most vulnerable people in that area of Zimbabwe. Some women walk hours to get to the clinic.

Yet without it, they would have to travel far longer for treatment, therefore endangering their health and the health of their babies.

Now, Sister Consilia uses her knowledge and experience to help other people who live a long way from the nearest town. She works at a local health centre as a pharmacist. She spent years training to be a pharmacist and now gives medicine to sick people, helps mums with advice and makes ward rounds.

Sister Consilia is an example of the types of local expert your Lenten donations help to support. Give to CAFOD this Lent and you will be supporting a trained professional like her to save lives and help people to thrive.
