LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) -- The Sisters of Mercy in Laredo gathered today to celebrate their 120th year of service in Laredo.

The organization started overseas 200 years ago to help impoverished women and children.

The Sisters work to care for those in need along the border here.

That includes caring for victims of abuse and their families.

The Sisters are starting a new effort now to raise awareness about immigration, the environment of Earth, women's issues and racism.
