The Daughters of Charity in mission to the most vulnerable living in the desert regions of Mauritania 

In Mauritania, a country where the population is 100% Muslim, there are two Daughters of Charity communities: one in Nouakchott, the capital of the country (3 sisters), and the other in Atar in the desert (4 sisters).

Atar is a town in central western Mauritania. A tourist base for tours in the Adrar region, the town and its 32,000 inhabitants have suffered in recent years from the impact of terrorist threats and the Covid pandemic. 

"On the outskirts of the town is also Château d'Eau, a stony region, even more disadvantaged than the centre of Atar, where the infrastructure remains very inadequate, especially for electricity and water needs in this region where the temperature can rise to 60°C and where the months of November to March are often very cold." Sr Diala

The Daughters of Charity have been in the country for 25 years and work with the most vulnerable people.  

- In their fight against the very low level of education, they provide literacy and French courses for 100 young people and adults, and welcome and provide meals in two kindergartens for 94 children in Atar and 28 children in Château d'Eau.

- Concerned about the malnutrition that affects children, they provide adequate care and food assistance for babies but also for their mothers (married too early and often abused or left)

- 10 young disabled and/or deaf-mute people are also given special attention through courses and workshops to train them to earn a decent living (languages, mathematics, carpentry, breeding and care of farm animals, gardening)

- Finally, thanks to the weekly visits of the sisters, prisoners can benefit from hot meals

Project to build and equip a reception and care centre in the Chateau d'Eau region 

Hygiene and health care awareness, education, supervision of women and young people, activities to keep children occupied and to get young people off the streets are all priority needs that the sisters want to meet in the absence of action by the government and social services.

Faced with the influx of requests, these local initiatives require the construction of a new home in order to effectively welcome these people in need of care and support. 

A budget of 6,300€ will enable the sisters to finance part of this development. 

They themselves have taken charge of the purchase of the land on which the building will be built and are seeking new resources to finalise the fitting out of the premises and the acquisition of furniture and school equipment. 

The people directly benefiting from this Center of Charity in Chateau d'Eau are 

- 100 children: a group of 30 in the kindergarten in addition to the other children who come for meals or activities

- 30 women: mothers of the children cared for and followed by the sisters

- 30 young people and adults: literacy and language courses

- The families of the region who benefit from weekly health care


A big thank you dear donors of the Rosalie Projects

Your support to ensure the financing of this home will be a precious help for the most vulnerable accompanied by the Daughters of Charity

Sister Diala Kassably

Of Lebanese origin and a Daughter of Charity for 22 years, I have served in Lebanon for 20 years in schools, boarding schools for children and with migrants and the homeless. In October 2020, I was sent on a mission Ad Gentes in Mauritania-Atar. I am part of a community of 4 sisters working in the field of care (health, education of young disabled people) and in the service of the excluded, in particular prisoners I am currently on mission at the Château d'Eau (on the outskirts of Atar) where we offer healthy food to the children of the region (between 85 and 100 children aged 2 to 10). I also provide literacy and language courses for young people and adults and contribute to the training of women and their awareness of hygiene, health and maternity issues.
