MANILA, Aug. 25, 2015 – A few days from now, another Camillian sister, a Filipina, will set foot on Sierra Leone, an African country stricken by the deadly Ebola Virus in the last year.
Sr. Bernardita “Didith” Otibar of the Philippines will join Sr. Benedetta Odundo Akech from Kenya, and the Camillian Task Force in Post-Disaster Response in Sierra Leone.
Sr. Didith, as she is fondly called, has been working in the Philippines among survivors of super typhoon Haiyan in Basey, Samar and nearby towns.
Camilllian Superior General Mother Lauretta Gianesin and the rest of the congregation calls on the public to pray for Otibar and for the success of the Sierra Leone mission.
According to Camillian Delegation Council 4th Councilor Sr. Daisy A. Carmona, Otibar is known “for her untiring and devout services with her generous and compassionate heart.” (CBCP News)
