This quote from our Founder,
Extend your mercy towards others, so that there can be no one in need whom you meet without helping. For what hope is there for us if God should withdraw His Mercy from us?
Saint Vincent de Paul describes succinctly the Mission of the Daughters of Charity. For 384 years the Daughters of Charity along with our collaborators and benefactors have served this mission; seeking out the most abandoned through the ministries of education, health care, social and pastoral services. We are an international community of 17,000 sisters serving in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas.
