Description

Since the development of the OLSH Overseas Aid Fund in 1987 the consisent objective has been to encourage and promote self-help programs which aim to improve people's general standard of living and help establish for the local people a life-style more worthy of their human dignity. The main thrust is to assist in the areas of education, health care and social and community development on a continuing, long-term basis. From time to time there are requests to respond to other needs but these are temporary and directed to providing only urgent, short-term aid. OLSH Sisters minister in a total of twenty-seven countries around the world. OLSH Sisters from the Australian Province are working side by side with local people in the countries below.
