Following the example of its founders who, full of evangelical audacity, went to where the poor were and took on new services to relieve their suffering, the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul are the Church’s missionary action instrument and develop in its core the Vincentian charism, inspired by the love of God and towards the poor ones.
The Daughters of Charity remain close to the poor ones promoting the awareness of their dignity as sons and daughters of God, along with helping them organize themselves in order to claim their rights.
They carry out missions in settlements with indigenous populations and rural workers. They also participate in the Pastoral Care for the Children, Health, Family and Prison Pastoral. Currently there are missions of the Daughters of Charity – Rio de Janeiro Province in Roraima, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul and Rio de Janeiro.
