The Home for the Destitute remains one of the most cherished apostolate of the Province. A number of sisters are engaged in the prison apostolate mostly as assistants to the prison chaplain. Among other challenges, the ethnic war has disrupted its work in the North. It is good to recall that the sisters assigned to the war-torn areas remained to their mandate and thrust till the end.
