International Day of Peace

Our founding Mother, Dr. Anna Dengel, often reminded our Sisters that "we must never be afraid to change if it is needed." We are reminded of her words today, on the 35th International Day of Peace, as the United Nations urges us to think of the "more than 65 million people forced to flee their homes" as refugees. The circumstances forcing them to flee are manifold, and now an increasing number must escape the effects of climate change.

Sister Karin Knoeting counsels refugees from countries including Syria, Afghanistan and Ethiopia on Germany's healthcare system.
