These are SÅ’URS AUXILIATRICES DE KOLWEZI in Democratic Republic of the Congo. They definitely have the most interesting habit I've ever seen! I can't seem to find very much info on them but it appears that other Democratic Republic of the Congo orders of women religious have a similar kind of habit -- small kerchief over the head with a lively patterned shirt and skirt.

It makes one wonder if the colors &/or patterns signify anything...but I must admit, these sisters wear them beautifully :)
