Given to God
Life as a Daughter of Charity is animated, first of all by the love of God and nourished by personal and communal prayer. We are ordinary women who commit to live:

- fully embracing the values of the Gospel
- reviewing our services according to the changing needs of people living in poverty
- responding to new needs as they arise.
