A Gift or Donation
The mission of the Religious Sisters of Charity is focussed on their 4th vow of the Congregation – Service of the Poor – the sisters work to promote a fair and just world where the poor have access to what the rich can buy with money.
Education is key to the development of the countries where we work and the sisters work in participation with the poor so that they are enabled to develop ways in which they respond to the needs of the community where they live – whatever those needs may be:
- Poverty reduction
- Enhancing rural life projects
- Smallholder food productivity
- Fight against HIV and AIDS
- Water and sanitation projects
The Religious Sisters of Charity support a variety of ministries with outreach and education programmes. Your support to the Sisters of Charity will help these works grow and help more people in need.

Making a Bequest
A Bequest ensures your assets are distributed in the way that you wish after your death. A Bequest to the Religious Sisters of Charity will:
- Express your appreciation for the work of the Sisters of Charity in many parts of the world
- Enable Sisters of Charity ministries to continue working and enable people to take control of their own lives and lift themselves out of poverty
- Help the Sisters of Charity continue to make a difference to the lives of many poor people
Bequests can be made in several ways.
It is important to seek advice when making your Bequest so that your Will reflects your intentions.
Contact the Congregational Bursar for more information on the various ways you can make a Bequest, and the suitable wording for your Bequest.
