Irish Loreto Missionary who helped set up Nyumbani Children’s Home in Kenya receives award

Along with an American Jesuit priest doctor, Fr Angelo D’Agostino, Sr Mary Owens set up Nyumbani Children’s Home in a rented house in Westlands, Nairobi in 1992 because orphanages in Kenya were turning away infants with HIV / AIDS. Today, under Sr Mary’s leadership four programmes provide care for over 4,000 children infected or affected by HIV.
