St. Vincent’s Home
A 100 bed aftercare centre - the St. Vincent's Home for AIDS sufferers was opened in 1997. Currently, both adults and children live in the home.
St. Vincent's Home is a happy place where residents get plenty of love and care. No one is made to feel like an outcast. Children play, sing and dance. Men and women express their joy in living, thankful to God for each moment.
Expert medical care is provided to the residents by a dedicated team. All of them arrive at the home horribly depressed. But within a few weeks, they experience new life and inner healing. Divine's trained counsellors share God's words of love, forgiveness and compassion to them. All are taught that they are much-loved children of God. In the evenings, some of the residents do gardening. All of them hold special devotion to Mother Mary and pray the rosary together.
The two sisters and dedicated volunteers in charge of the home speak of the remarkable way in which the residents face life and death - without fear – as God has said, "I will never leave you; I will never abandon you." (Hebrews 13:5)
Happy are those who are humble; they will receive what God has promised (Matt 5:5)
