The services of nursing nuns are so highly appreciated in Egyp't that the Government has asked for sisters for several hospitals, official and semi-official.
The sisters are free to carry on their work according to their own wishes, and a private oratory is provided for them in the hospital.
Up to now only the Italian Sisters of the Nigritia. whose motherhouse is in Verona. have been able to answer the call. Were they twice as numerous as they are they would still not be able to satisfy all the demands made on their charity and devotion.
