The Permanent Representative of the Sovereign Order of Malta, Michael P. Murphy, KM paid a courtesy visit to the headquarters of the Comboni Missionary Sisters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The Comboni Missionary Sisters are women consecrated to God for the mission “ad gentes.” They came into being in 1872 and, because of the prophetic inspiration of Daniel Comboni, and founded as an exclusively missionary institute. Comboni was a missionary who was passionate about Christ and about Africa and who always and everywhere gave priority to the most vulnerable people.

In Ethiopia have they a variety of ministries throughout the country, but the most pressing needs they have expressed have been in the field of health care, and in administration/management. There are three clinics that are in need of personnel: in Awassa, Qillenso, and Didim.
