Sr Anita of the Kacchi Kohli tribe

After 70 years of mission among the tribal peoples settled in Sindh, one of the four provinces of Pakistan, the Catholic Church welcomed the first woman religious of the Kacchi Kohli tribe. She is 29-year-old Anita Maryam Mansingh, a Sister of the Congregation of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Born in Tando Alahyar, a small town not far from Mirpur Khas, she entered the Sisters of the Presentation having acquired a degree in the educational sciences. For years Sr Anita has been involved in the field of teaching. The religious have for some time played an extremely delicate role on behalf of the more vulnerable people of the area, regardless of religion or race, but the new presence of a religious belonging to one of the local tribal populations will undoubtedly do even more to bring sceptics and critics closer.
