We are delighted to share the news that Sr Orla Treacy has received the International Women of Courage Award at the State Department in Washington, along with nine others from around the world.  It was presented to her today by the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and US Frist Lady Melania Trump.

The awards honour "women around the world who have demonstrated exceptional courage, strengh, and leadership in acting to bring positive change to their societies, often at great personal risk and sacrifice". This sentence describes so well Orla and all she does and is for Rumbek.
