St. Luke’s Home Care

A Programme bringing help to people in their homes.

St Luke’s Home Care is led by Jane Dowd, Educational Health Nurse, from Co Galway, Ireland. Jane now employs four local nurses with their irreplaceable knowledge of both culture and language. Formerly unemployed, these dedicated professionals are making a huge difference in the lives of people of all age groups who were traumatised because of war and ethnic cleansing. The incidence of poor health, even among the young, is very high. As there is little or no local infrastructure to cope, St Joseph & The Helpers Charity are very happy to support Jane and her team in this great work. We fund one of Jane’s nurses at a cost of €10,000 per year. With your help we can provide much needed resources for Jane which will enable her to fund and expand this programme of care in the community.
