The Maria Auxiliadora Clinic aims to address the gaps in care – not only providing medical treatment but health education that empowers the community to take control of their health.
In the smallest corners of the globe, you will find the missionary spirit is still kept alive – kept by the missionaries who have built lasting relationships and trust with their people. Missionaries like Sr Carolina.
Aligning with the Salesian Sisters mission, Sr Carolina set out to be of service to her people – becoming a nurse at the local health clinic – The Maria Auxiliadora Clinic.
In a community rife with health concerns, as a result of fragile infrastructure and limited access to care, the Clinic aimed to address the gaps and empower the community to have autonomy over their health and well-being.

In his World Mission Day message for 2023, Pope Francis reminds us through Luke 24:13-35, “hearts on fire, feet on the move”, that the missionary journey of all disciples is that upon encountering Jesus, our hearts burn within, our eyes are opened and ultimately, our feet are set out on the way – and Sr Carolina’s dedication to her community testifies to this.
