Diouroup is a town made up of several small rural villages to the south-east of Dakar, the capital of Senegal. 

Since their arrival at the end of 2020, the sisters have rapidly integrated into the community by learning the language, culture and way of life. The vast majority of the population lives below the poverty line.

At the request of the local people, the sisters set about identifying the services and help they could provide. In the 15 villages surrounding Diouroup, they organised meetings with various social players: women's associations, parish councils, town councils, regardless of race, sex or religion.

One of the main problems identified by residents is the health of chronically ill people suffering from a range of illnesses (diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, osteoarthritis, stroke, etc.) and basic care for all.
The Saint-Vincent-de-Paul Centre opened in October 2022 to improve access to healthcare for the residents of Dioroup, particularly the most vulnerable.


The project: to support a health programme focusing on chronic and degenerative diseases for one year.

"Due to a lack of financial resources, institutional and social support, and prevention, many patients suffering from chronic or degenerative diseases abandon their treatment: this leads to serious medical complications and a deterioration in their quality of life". Sr Georgette

Beneficiaries :

- around 80 dependent patients in Diouroup and surrounding villages

- 570 consultations at the Centre for regular medical monitoring of people with chronic illnesses

- 250 people of all ages treated for basic health care and infections caused by a lack of hygiene and information (skin, digestive and respiratory infections, etc.) 

"The beneficiaries are very poor people of all ages
from farming and stockbreeding families.
They play an active role in organising the health programme; they even make a small financial contribution to ensure continuity of care, payment of salaries or the purchase of medicines". Sr Georgette

The financial aid will enable : 

- provide consultations and follow-up for chronically ill patients to improve their health and quality of life

- offer re-education sessions (therapeutic massages, functional re-education exercises, etc.)

- provide home care for people who are unable to travel, thanks to mobile consultations in Dioroup and surrounding villages
 
- organise information and prevention groups to raise awareness, particularly among women cooks, of cardiovascular disease and its negative consequences (diabetes and hypertension due to a diet rich in salt, spices, sugar, etc.).

With them, thanks to you!

I am a Daughter of Charity with 17 years of vocation. I am from Burkina Faso.
I did my postulancy and seminary in Congo (2005-2008). Then I was sent to Mauritania, where I stayed for four years. I then went to Cameroon to study nursing and returned to Mauritania in 2017.
Since December 2020, I've been in Senegal on this new mission in Diouroup. I'm currently working in this small health centre that we've opened to monitor people with chronic illnesses and to provide basic care for people of all ages.
