pensées of a Catholic priest

23.10.2009 Friday eve…

Friday eve in Berlin – a long day draws to an end and it is nice just to have the perspective of going to bed before midnight. 🙂

The meeting with the Charite and all other invited parties was a very productive one and I am looking forward now to see the HIV / AIDS exhibition 2012/2013 being realised with the help of a whole network of supporters. As Joachim Franz said this morning: “There are times where you feel that things simply are coming together”. And this week was indeed such a time where all the networking of the last years brought different people together and drew several plans which will bring the topic of HIV and AIDS once again to center stage. Rising numbers also in many parts of Europe make it indeed necessary to highlight the danger of ignorance towards this pandemic.

It was an exhausting week, but a good one. Tomorrow morning I will meet up with an old friend of mine  and I am looking forward to it. Besides all business there must be time to refresh old friendships and to catch up with people close to your heart.

The week was also a good one for HOPE Cape Town and I am sure the management will be delighted to hear about the variety of networking and involvement it will have in the next years to come. For me personally, networking is in our days one of the most important ways of using resources wisely but also to create synergies which reach out in a way, a single organisation will never be able to do alone.

HIV, AIDS and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and AIDS in Africa is often a challenge. Living in Africa has also its challenges. On the other hand I feel very much blessed having all the three. So you will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa and essential information and developments in the field of HIV and AIDS. And in between personal stories and thoughts. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me - blogs - "thinking loud" so to speak is a ways of communication and exchange of ideas.
