Sr Giovana and the Comboni Samaritans of Gulu

This Lent we’re looking at SCIAF’s work in Uganda, bringing hope to a generation of young people trapped in poverty. Someone who knows a lot about this, is Sr Giovana.

Sr Giovana is one of the inspirational founders of Comboni Samaritans of Gulu, a SCIAF partner organisation in Northern Uganda. After moving to Uganda in 1971 she’s dedicated her life to serving those most in need, attempting to help others rebuild their lives after the devastation of war, disease and poverty.

In this special video, Sr Giovana shares some of her incredible experiences during a life of service, explains just a few of the problems facing Ugandans today, and reveals some of what she’s learnt along the way.
