'Missionaries of Charity homes are Overdue for improvements!!!

This is one of many letters volunteers provided me over the years to present to the then 'Missionaries of Charity CEO -Superior General Nirmala to encourage her to improve conditions. Over the years attempts to alert the nuns that their homes and conditions were nowhere near good enough fell on deaf ears!!!AND CONTINUE TO!!  I spoke with Nirmala more than a dozen times. I presented letters from volunteers who were concerned enough to speak out even at risk of being possibly subsequently disallowed to continue volunteering. The tragic thing remains that due to the 'Missionaries of Charity using below minimum staffing levels, seriously low wages and discouraging locals from volunteering, the foreign volunteers are providing essential functions!

  1. Hi Sally,

    I organise talks and debates with a secularist group called Atheist Ireland. I've been looking in vain for a former Missionaries volunteer from Ireland (or even just living here, nationality isn't important) to either address our group or do an interview for our blog. I wonder if you could help me out or even give me a bit of advice on how best to search? I'd very much appreciate it.

    You can contact me at this gmail account.

    Thanks for your time,

    Ciarán MacAoidh

  2. Hi Ciarán
    The library computer I use has blocked Atheist Ireland! so I will organise to use a friend's computer soon! meanwhile I don't live in Ireland and as so many of the volunteers I have worked and talked with find the abuse in the MC homes scary I can't offhand think of a Irish volunteer who could help out. People who comment to the MCs are disallowed to continue volunteering. Keywords for internet comments include 'MC and sadism'etc
    I'm very willing to help thanks for your time and interest sally
