Little Sisters of the Poor

Little sisters of the poor, located in Enugu Nigeria, is a home for the elderly. The home takes care of more than 65 elderly people who have no one else to turn to. The congregation was founded in France by Saint Jeanne Jugan who desired to devote herself entirely to the care of the aged. During the winter of 1839 Jeanne received into her home an elderly woman. Some months later they were already five. She nursed, clothed and fed them until the end of their lives. This was the beginning of the Little Sisters of the Poor. Already they have 235 homes for the aged in 32 countries. Spectranet Limited has been supporting this home with some basic needs to care for the elderly men and women.
