The Comboni Missionary Sisters Illness knows no boundaries, and nor do the Sisters. Their compassion for everyone seeking their help is deep, and the medical care which the Sisters and their staff give is second to none. The Comboni sisters came into being in 1872 as an exclusively missionary institute and as a result of the prophetic inspiration of Daniel Comboni. He was a missionary who was passionate about Africa and who always and everywhere gave priority to the poorest and most excluded people in the world. There are currently 1563 Comboni sisters, from 33 countries working around the world. The sisters work in 30 countries on four continents, helping thousands of refugees every year. IRT are very proud to be supporting the sisters at the Karak hospital in Jordan, The paediatric ward at Nzara hospital and various schools in Sudan.
