Sister Anne

I found this article about Sister Anne Carr, must be the one Bono mentions in Crumbs

Does anyone have any more information about her?

when I was looking for this I also found this article about the hospital where she works

http://www.boston.com/globe/nation/p...t/malawi.shtml

" The 750-bed Lilongwe hospital, which is on a hill near the center of the capital, was once the crown jewel of health care in Malawi. It is one of three central hospitals that for years have attracted the nation's top generalists and specialists.

But Lilongwe Central is no jewel now. Its level of care has fallen so precipitously that one senior Malawi government official describes the adult wards as "no longer a medical ward but a morgue."

In those wards, the government estimates, 70 percent of the patients are HIV-infected. Hospital workers say it is closer to 90 percent. "It's HIV unless proven otherwise," says hospital director Dr. Charles Mwansambo. Health workers themselves are not immune. It is widely accepted here that at least 25 percent of them are infected. "

This is TRULY one of the BEST threads in this forum!

Thanks, Mrs. Springsteen, for these articles.

I remember Bono's visit to Malawi but had never seen these articles.

IN THE NAME OF LOVE....

Good find MrsSpringsteen! I hunted some info about her awhile back and didn't find anything. The article spells her name "Anne", but she is credited as "Sr. Ann Carr" in the HTDAAB booklet.


The Boston Globe article is heart wrenching. I hope great things happen at the G8 summit.

Thanks Mrs. Springsteen for posting this. And thanks, Jamila for bumping it up, I must have missed it the first time around.

Those poor people . . . it makes me so sad but eager to send a prayer and keep trying to help, ONE day at a time.

"dignity passes by"

Those are some profound words by Sister Anne Carr.

In the most desolate places with the most desparate people, that is where real salvation is found.

Love this thread.
