Meet Maureen Forrest and Jenny Browne rsm

12 years ago, Maureen Forrest founded the charity called the Hope Foundation. On a visit to Calcutta in India, she was extremely shocked by the poverty she witnessed and desperately wanted to do something to address this. Maureen invited her sister Jenny a Sister of Mercy and a member of the Southern Province of the Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy to go and work in Calcutta as overseas director with the newly formed Hope Foundation. Jenny was given the go ahead to go to Calcutta by her Provincial Leader and has been engaged in that work since.
