The Africa Unit was formed in 2013 when sisters ministering in Zambia and Zimbabwe came together to form one group.

Sisters first began their mission in Africa in 1949 with the arrival of four sisters from India to Zimbabwe - known as Southern Rhodesia at that time.

Sisters arrived in Zambia from England in 1970.  These were followed by missions being established by Sisters from Ireland (1973) and from India (1983). In 1989, the groups came together to form the Vice Province of Zambia.
