Health facilities are very minimal in most of our mission areas so our members are constantly trying to find ways of relieving the suffering that people have to endure. Hospitals and clinics are always a priority. Personnel and funding are a constant problem. The needs are even greater now with the spread of Aids. The numbers that need care and to be treated with dignity have increased very much. New problems have come with large numbers of orphans being cared for by elderly grandparents. Because of these serious problems Aids awareness education programmes are set up in most parishes where there is a need.
