RIO BRANCO is the capital city of the state of Acre,which lies in the northern region of Brazil near Bolivia and Peru. Sr. Ursula has there built an orthopedic shoe workshop for lepers, which after her return back to Germany now goes on under the Brazilian responsibility. Sr. Christina and our Brazilian sister Margarida initiated daycare for children. Now both of them are retired.
Sr. Christina has returned to Germany in August 2009 but she has an intensive relationship with Sr. Margarida. Each year she visits her in Rio Branco for several months.
Both of them take part of church services especially in visiting older people.
