Sisters of Mercy Wiri
The Sisters of Mercy Wiri Trust supports the ministry of Sisters Anne Hurley and Margaret Martin in the neighbourhood of Wiri, a poor suburb near Auckland Airport.
The Sisters work from a social justice and community development focus. They participate in processes to influence those who exercise power and make decisions affecting the lives of others, raise awareness of current issues, encourage neighbourhood and community participation and support local initiatives. In this way they are a community resource.
Services currently provided include information, advice and referral, advocacy, responding to immediate need, supporting family/whanau and their children, home visits and prison visitation. Read more
