Sisters of St. Anne: Who We Are and What We Do

My name is Sister Anne, and I am a member of the Sisters of St. Anne. Our congregation is a religious institute of women founded in France in 1650. We are dedicated to serving the needs of the poor and sick, especially those suffering from HIV/AIDS.

We currently operate in 25 countries on five continents. Our work includes providing medical care and social services, running orphanages and schools, and working with refugees.

In the United States, we founded the first AIDS hospice in New York City and were one of the first groups to provide direct care to people with HIV/AIDS in San Francisco. We also founded an AIDS ministry in Washington, D.C., which provides advocacy and education on HIV/AIDS issues.
