One year after the beginning of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Sisters Hospitallers renew our commitment to the service of the most fragile people.
Sisters Hospitallers, working togheter with the Superiors General of religious congregations at the service of the most fragile people, in a statement issued by the International Union of Superiors General (UISG), give thanks to God for the generosity with which so many of their members have given their commitment, energy and even their lives to care for those affected by the insidious virus.
“As we consolidate methods of prevention and treatment that make it possible to face the present challenge and make everyone more attentive and prepared for the future, we hope that all the populations of the planet, even the poorest, will have access to this providential vaccine and we urge all religious men and women to promote this commitment both in their own religious families and in the areas where they work.
Furthermore, as those responsible for numerous residential services for the elderly or those with various types of disabilities, we wish to reaffirm our commitment to continue to place the person at the center of the services offered and the promotion of life in the best possible quality as the specific purpose of our institutions, seeking to continuously improve the quality of our offerings.
(…) Therefore, it remains the commitment of our religious families to “host” and offer a home with the possibility of healing interpersonal relationships to many people who continue to knock on our doors who, because of the difficulty of their situation, are unable to see their care needs met.”
