St Mary's

In 1954, a group of adventuring Dominican nuns from Spain arrived in Ahmedabad, India, to start a hospital. The sisters were horrified by the hopeless poverty, the homes without sanitation, and the low levels of life skills. The area had been famous for its textiles, but with trends changing the mills were starting to close, leaving families with little income.

“Everything is good! Like a family, we work together in a group.”

(Sunita, St Mary’s)
