Sister Carmel Wauchope, a sister of the Good Samaritans kicked off her habit some 20 years ago. However, her current habit is just as profound: the plight of refugees who have been detained in detention centres and the ongoing psychological damage and trauma suffered after their release.


Through Sister Carmel we learn the ongoing hardships the refugees face and how important it is to maintain a sense of love, compassion and humanity in today’s world; a world which often seems to be full of fundamentalism and hatred. For Sister Carmel, religious tolerance is of the utmost importance and her respect for the refugees and their Muslim faith is an inspiration.
