God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensée of a Catholic priest

17.07.2010 Vienna is calling

Today I will fly to Vienna to attend the World AIDS Conference. It is a huge conference and a diversity of topics and presentations and for me, it is a source for new inspiration to meet people from all walks of life, to catch up with those I meet only on such conferences and to learn what the world outside South Africa and Africa brings in on new ideas regarding HIV and AIDS.  The conferences I have attended so far were all very intensive and I like to just being there and listening and learning as the days unfold.

After the conference I will continue my journey flying to Frankfurt and on the weekend there will be the launch of a two years fundraising drive towards HOPE Cape Town from the Udo Lindenberg Foundation. I am looking forward to meet friends and sponsors of HOPE Cape Town, Viola and Hermjo and of course Udo Lindenberg and his team. Before flying back I will meet up with new sponsors at Frankfurt Airport. An intensive time ahead and I am looking forward to coming back to Cape Town with lots of new ideas and inspirations. Be warned 🙂

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.
