Sister Beatrice Chipeta, the founder of our partner Lusubilo Orphan Care in Northern Malawi is being honored today at Fordham University. Sr. Beatrice is a winner of the Opus Prize, an annual faith-based humanitarian award that celebrates unsung heroes.
The district of Karonga where Sister works is plagued with a 12 percent incidence of HIV that have left thousands of children orphaned. Sister works with communities to meet the needs of around 9,500 children who have been orphaned or made vulnerable by the AIDS epidemic. Our most heartfelt congratulations to you, Sister Beatrice, for this well-deserved recognition.
Sister Beatrice split the award with another winner, Rev. John Halligan, S.J., the founder of the Working Boys’ Center in Quito, Ecuador.
